Use of a mobile phone to go online in the UK 2013-2019 by age

This statistic displays the findings of a survey on the use of mobile phones to go online in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2013 to 2019, by age. During the survey in 2014 it was found that 81 percent of all respondents aged between 16 and 24 years used a mobile phone to access internet. In 2019 the share of respondents had grown to 94 percent of the age group. When the survey changed the term from mobile device to smart phone in 2014 the share of use among the youngest age groups dropped. In 2019, the share of use in almost all age groups had grown compared to the previous year.
