Mobile web usage on the up

Comments

graph-up.jpgBango released a report today on mobile web usage, revealing the U.S. has tripled its numbers in the last year.

According to Bango data, the top five countries accessing the mobile web via Bango in April 2007 are the UK at 27%, the US at 21%, South Africa at 11%, India at 9% and Indonesia at 3%.

Not that India needs any more wireless news, but apparently 9% of all mobile page views come from India, and is rising at a rate set to overtake Europe’s in a couple of years. The report highlights flat data rates as a big push factor for mobile web browsing, and forecasts a drop in flat data rates in the US in order to remain competitive, not that we’d ever suggest that there’s something wrong Canadian rates.
