Mobile Web Usage Higher in China Than U.S.

By Published on .

A larger percentage of people in China use web-enabled phones than in the U.S. Of 57 million people with web-enabled mobile phones in the U.S., 18 million, or about 31%, use the devices to connect to the internet. Of 182 million people with web-enabled mobile phones in China, 102 million (56%) use them for web-surfing.

In China, people spend more of their monthly income--about 2-3%--for voice and data plans, compared to about 1% in the U.S. However, fees for premium content tend to be lower in China. A song typically costs a dollar in the U.S., but might cost a quarter in China.

More than 10% of Chinese discover web services through the phone first and then migrate to the computer.
