Smartphone ownership in the UK at record levels

A report released last week by Ofcom (the communications regulator) has shown that smartphones have overtaken laptops as the most popular device for getting online.

In 2014, jut 22% of people used their phone to surf the net with 40% preferring to use their laptop.

This year the figures are 33% in favour of their phone and just 30% for laptops. Interestingly, the report also shows that the age of smartphone users is probably broader than we think.

Yes, 90% of 16 to 24 year olds own a smartphone but so does 50% of those aged 55-64. The time spent online also varies depending on the platform used: those with smartphones are online for almost 2 hours every day (1 hour 54 minutes) compared to those with a laptop or PC which is just over an hour every day (1 hour 9 minutes).

The time spent online is split between accessing social media, banking online and of course, online shopping!

So how do these facts affect businesses? For sure, it means that websites need to be optimised across all platforms so that potential clients can browse content easily. It also means that we cannot assume that older clients will not surf the net for goods or products.

They do! Here at we are taking heed of our own advice. The business directory is available to everyone with an Internet connection and is accessible on all platforms. The directory is also full of products & services aimed right across all age groups – from trendy places to eat and drink to financial advisors, from online shoe retailers to funeral planning services.
