US Mobile Internet registers 154% growth in 2007

It seems there’s no stopping the invasion of Mobile 2.0 or the convergence of mobile technology and Internet. The latest data from research firm comScore reveals that the “number of computers using mobile broadband technology to access the Internet grew by 154 percent in Q4 2007 versus the same period in 2006.”


“Though mobile broadband access is currently used by about 1 percent of the total U.S. Internet population it is poised for significant growth over the next few years,” said Serge Matta, senior vice president of comScore. “As consumers increasingly demand and depend on portable Internet access, the demand for mobile broadband should continue to increase.”

An interesting insight here is the disparity of mobile Internet across different household income. It turned out this is still considered as luxury. Those making at least $100,000 were 37 percent more likely than average to use mobile broadband and those with incomes below $25,000 were 41 percent less likely to do so.
