More than half of Americans use mobile phones instead of landlines
A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control used to track demographics of landline telephones reveals that more than half of US homes donít have or didnít use their land-based telephones in 2012. Techspot reports.
The CDC discovered that roughly a third of Americans (35.8 percent, to be exact) relied solely on wireless phones for voice communication. 15.9 percent of all homes surveyed had wireless phones and landlines but handled almost all of their calls via mobile phone.
Combined, 51.7 percent of US homes either donít have a landline or donít use it as their primary phone, an increase of 1.8 percent year over year.
