July 08 2014
More Americans than ever have cut the (telephone) cord, but the growth rate of wireless-only households slowed last year.
About two-in-five (41%) of U.S. households had only wireless phones in the second half of 2013, according to a report released today by the National Center for Health Statistics. The center, the statistical arm of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, estimated that 39.1% of adults and 47.1% of children lived in wireless-only households.
