United Kingdom: number of connected devices per person 2017

How many connected devices do you currently use?*

by S. O'Dea, last edited Aug 9, 2019
United Kingdom: number of connected devices per person 2017 30 percent of people in the United Kingdom (UK) own five or more connected devices, according to the most recent Connected Consumer Survey from Google and TNS Infratest. In 2017, one in ten people reported that they did not own a single connected device.
Comparing the UK to selected European nations

Compared to Germany, the UK has more people owning five devices or more, with just 20 percent of German respondents saying they owned more than five devices. Over in the Netherlands, while the same share of respondents claim to have five devices or more, just three percent of the Dutch population claim to not have a single connected device. Italy has a more even spread of results, with 18 percent of respondents claiming not to own a connected device, and 18 percent of respondents claiming (maybe think about using a synonym) to own five or more such devices.

Penetration rate of connected devices other than smartphones

While smartphones are one of the most prevalent connected devices a person may own, they are not the only such device a household is likely to own. The number of households in the UK owning (synonym for own) a desktop PC, laptop, netbook or tablet computer continues to rise, with 83 percent of households reporting that they owned at least one of those devices, up from 70 percent in 2008.
