Trends On Tuesday: Most Internet Access Via Mobile by 2015

New predictions released by International Data Corporation (IDC).

By 2015, more U.S. Internet users will access the Internet through mobile devices than through PCs or other wireline devices. As smartphones begin to outsell simpler feature phones, and as media tablet sales explode, the number of mobile Internet users will grow by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.6% between 2010 and 2015.

The release goes on to say:

“Forget what we have taken for granted on how consumers use the Internet,” said Karsten Weide, research vice president of Media and Entertainment. “Soon, more users will access the Web using mobile devices than using PCs, and it’s going to make the Internet a very different place.”

How do you think this will make the Internet different? And, more importantly, how will it impact the way your agency is delivering services to the public?
