Use of a mobile phone to access the internet increased in the year to Q1 2012 in Scotland, but was still lower than average

Three in ten adults in Scotland (31%) said that they had used a mobile phone to access the internet in Q1 2012, the majority of these saying that they had done so within the previous week (Figure 5.8). Although use of a mobile phone to access the internet in Scotland was less common than in all of the other UK nations, the proportion of people doing increased from 21% to 31% in the year to Q1 2012, indicating that use in Scotland is catching up with the other UK nations. Three per cent of households in Scotland used smartphones as their sole internet connection in Q1 2012, unchanged from a year previously.
