New research reports that US households without landlines are growing steadily. The Center for Media Research recapped the findings from GfK Mediamark Research’s recent interviews with US adults.
Approximately 44% of adults in the United States do not have landline telephones in the household but do have cell phones. By comparison, there were only 26% of households in 2010 that only had cell phones. That is a growth of about 70% over the last few years.
The research further broke down the percentages of cell-phone-only households by age groups.
· 64% of Millennials
· 45% of Generation Xers
· 32% of Baby Boomers
· 13% of Pre-Boomers
Overall, about 93% of all adults in the US have cell phones according to recent accounts. Time will tell in how the cell-phone-only households’ growth will trend.
