Census Bureau data shows about 28% of households ditched their landline and now rely exclusively on a cellphone. For households in the 15 to 29 age bracket, the portion doing so is about two-thirds.
That info is reported by the Wall Street Journal – More People Say Goodbye to Their Landlines.
Households with a landline dropped from near 100% in 1998 to 71% in 2011, according to a nice graph in the article. Households with a cellphone increased from 36% in ’98 to 89% in ’11.
That is a lot of change in just 13 years.
