More Mobile Phone Users Ditching Landlines
Yet another study (though, this one by a biased party) suggesting that more people are ditching landlines in favor of mobile phones. Leap Wireless has found that 37% of their customers don’t have landlines, and rely on their mobile phones as their primary phone line. That’s up from 26% last year. This trend looks like it’s only going to increase. Five years ago, I knew less than five people who only used mobile phones. Now, I would say the majority of my close friends no longer have landlines. Anecdotal evidence, to be sure, but the trend is clear.
