Mobile surfing in US as popular as in UK

Surfing on the mobile internet is becoming more and more popular in the United States. According to Bango, the use will soon surpass the level of the United Kingdom, where mobile surfing has been common for years.

Bango reports the top 5 countries for July 2008:
– UK (19,35 %)
– US (18,88 %)
– India (10,82 %)
– South Africa (8,82 %)
– Indonesia (4,08 %)

Apart from the UK, Spain is the only other European country that made it into the Top 10.

Interesting detail: that top 10 represents worldwide almost 75% of all mobile web use; the rest is divided over 91 other countries.

  1. Hi there,

    appreciate this post was a few weeks ago now but its an interesting story. Mippin, a site delivering the internet to mobile phones, has a similar story, which is reported in the following blog post by our co-founder Scott Beaumont. The post is called Debunking two US myths, written on Tuesday, 30 September 2008 at http://blog.mippin.com and reports high internet usage in the USA.

    There’s a few other points in there too. You might find it interesting. And let us know what you think of Mippin too if you have a chance – http://www.mippin.com
