The humble desktop PC is no longer the tool most of us use to access the internet.

Handheld devices are now the most widely used means of going online with smartphones the hardware of choice. This is especially true among 16-34 year olds where 70% of this age group are using such devices.

We clearly like wireless devices because laptops and tablets are also popular pieces of kit for connecting to the internet.

This public opinion data has been collected and analysed by NEMS from a survey of representative sample of UK adults conducted through NEMS Market Research’s telephone omnibus, a national survey of 1000 adults conducted every week.
