More Aussies Go Mobile-Phone Only: Latest ACMA Report

More than half of Australian adults have ditched their landline phones and now relying solely on mobile devices for home use, according a new report by the Australian Communication and Media Authority.

The report found that 51% of Australian adults have now gone mobile-only for voice calls at home, up from just 27% in 2016.

“For making calls, Australians keep moving away from their fixed -line phone. An ever-increasing number of adults now use a mobile, and less [ACMA means “fewer” – Ed.] have a home land-line,” the report says.

However, ACMA also found that the number of people using mobile-only for Internet at home has dropped seven percent to 16%, down from 23% in 2014.
