Growing Number of Customers Dump Landlines for Wireless


12/12/2007

A growing number of American cell phone users are ditching their fixed-line telephones, and close to a quarter of current landline subscribers would consider using wireless only, according to a recent report by In-Stat.

Researchers found that most cord cutters are less than 35 years old, and have a lower income than the average landline subscriber. These people apparently use 22% more wireless airtime than the average survey respondent, and 40% more than those who had no interest in canceling their fixed-line service.

As one might expect, cord cutters tend to spend considerably more than average on wireless service, with an average phone bill of $111 per month.

“The largest number of current cord cutters those who do not have a landline, but rely solely on their mobile phone are those one might expect: young, single, living alone or sharing quarters such as a dormitory or rooming house,” said Jill Meyers, In-Stat analyst in a release announcing the findings. “In many cases, these are people who are the least-likely candidates to have a landline phone.”
