Quarter of homes in the US now have only wireless phones, no landlines

April 25, 2011
By

That percentage doubled in three years, reports CBS News.

Among the findings of the survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics were:

— More than one-in-four U.S. homes, or 26.6 percent, had only a wireless phone as of June 2010, up from 13.6 percent in 2007.

— The percentage of wireless-only homes increased in every state, ranging from 35.2 percent in Arkansas to 12.8 percent in Rhode Island and New Jersey.

“There are really three factors at play here,” personal finance expert Carmen Wong Ulrich said on “The Early Show on Saturday Morning.” “One is the affordability of cell phones. Folks with tight budgets are less likely to be able to carry a landline and a cell phone. That’s regional, as well.

“Forty-four percent of folks between the age of 18-and-30 are wireless only. That’s a huge number. And a lot of young adults will never have a land line in their lives.
