Mobile/Tablet Internet Access Surpasses Desktop for 1st Time
On a global basis, a majority of consumers access the Internet from a mobile device or tablet, though that is not the case in the United Kingdom, Australia, or United States, new data from StatCounter shows.
Separating mobile from tablet data, desktop instances still outnumber mobile sessions, though. Desktop sessions represented about 49 percent of Internet usage in October 2016, while mobile instances represented 47 percent. Tablet sessions added another five percent of access activity.
