Mobile & tablet web browsing reaches 40% in the UK

As of October 2014 mobile and tablet web browsing numbers have reached 40% of all web browsing traffic in the United Kingdom. This has almost doubled from the year before with October 2013 showing 22% of web traffic coming from mobile and tablet devices.

Interestingly, the statistics show that the increase from last year is mostly coming from mobile phones with tablet devices only making a small increase. With the rate that mobile phone web browsing is consistently increasing, many studies are predicting that mobile device traffic will take over traditional desktop traffic by the beginning of 2015, officially marking a major shift in the way that we use the internet in our daily lives.
