70% of UK adults now access the internet via smartphones

With more than 8 out of 10 adults in Britain using the internet daily (82% of the UK’s adult population - a total of 41.8 million people), having an effective website is the single most important and cost-effective way to promote your business. 

But with 71% of British internet users now accessing the internet using mobiles or smartphones rather than desktop computers, having a mobile compatible (responsive) website is now more important than ever.

According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), only 40% of UK adults used a desktop computer to access the internet in 2016.

The most common type of device used to access the internet in 2016 was a mobile phone or smartphone (70%), followed by a laptop or tablet (36%). According to the ONS, 76% of adults used the internet in 2016 to find information about goods and services, second only to checking emails.

While the use of mobile phones or smartphones to access the internet continues to increase (from 66% in 2015 to 70% in 2016) the use of portable computers has decreased substantially (from 45% in 2015 to 36% in 2016).

If your current website is not responsive, then it is effectively failing to reach around 70% of internet users today.

Many businesses, especially sole traders, may have been put off by the cost of upgrading their current website to mobile compatibility as many developers will quote several thousand pounds to upgrade even a relatively small 10 page brochure website.

However, Great-Value-Websites.Com have built hundreds of websites for small and medium sized businesses and organisations throughout the UK for just £290.00 all-in.*
