Internet usage in the United States

Overall, 90 percent of U.S. adults were reported to use the internet at least occasionally, up from 76 percent in 2010. Online usage is strong across all age groups and virtually universal among young adults aged 18 to 29 years.

As of the first quarter of 2019, internet users in North America spent an average of 3 hours and 57 minutes online via mobile, compared to only 2 hours and 33 minutes of daily non-mobile internet use. The number of mobile phone internet users in the United States is set to surpass 287 million users in 2023, up from 262 million 2018. The strong usage of mobile internet is largely due to the wide availability of mobile broadband subscriptions - in the most recently reported year, there were 132.9 mobile broadband subscriptions per 100 inhabitants in the United States.
