The average UK adult spends 68 hours online every month

A new study has revealed that the average UK adult spends 68 hours online and over 7 hours using their mobile phone every month. This equates to over a month (34 days) a year online and three and a half days per year on the phone.

The Moneysupermarket survey was conducted by Opinium Research with over 2000 British adults between Friday 21st and Tuesday 25th August 2009. It found that 59% feel they would be cut off from the world without a phone or Internet connection.

Technology is so important that people would find it hard to keep in touch with friends and family, with 30% of adults admitting they would contact people less without access to the Internet or a mobile phone. Some 14% wouldn't know how to keep in touch if they did not have a mobile or Internet connection (could try meeting them in person, we suppose? Nah..).
