Mobile Numbers Jumping in U.K.
The number of mobile phone users that are actively accessing the internet are rapidly climbing. According to the Mobile Data Association (MDA) Britons numbering 40.7 million are said to have used their mobile phones for downloads and browsing the Internet during the third quarter of 2006. That's up from 13 million recorded in July. The massive increase can be attributed to more users upgrading their mobile phones and better connectivity with the mobile Internet. An impressive 57% of U.K. users own a mobile phone that can access the Internet.
To no surprise, the MDA reports that Google is the most accessed site via mobile phones. What came in second? Interestingly enough - chat sites.
