- Mobile phones will be used for 80% of internet access by 2019, reports Quartz. In 2010, only a fourth of internet users were phone-based, according to the study of more than 50 countries’ internet access.
- As of now, 70% of internet access is through mobile phones. Since the vast majority of internet access is mobile, Quartz said the “mobile internet” now simply refers to “the internet.”
- Innovations in technology have helped accelerate mobile internet access. For example, affordability in smart mobile phones is helping Africa increase mobile broadband connections from 419 million to 1.07 billion by the end of 2022, reports Reuters.
