Desktop and laptop PCs are by far the most common way consumers in Germany go online. But internet usage via smartphones and tablets has grown rapidly over the past few years—and for young people mobile is becoming a primary access channel.
TNS Infratest reported that this year, 92% of consumers in Germany ages 14 to 64 accessed the internet. The vast majority of those people used a desktop or laptop computer to go online. That hasn’t changed much over the past two years.
But since 2013, the percentage of consumers using the internet via smartphone rose from 41% to 67%. The increase in internet access via tablet was even steeper over the same period.
