USA to surpass UK mobile internet surfing

The latest mobile website data released by Bango has revealed that mobile web usage is not only gaining traction in the United States but soon will surpass the UK, where consumers have accessed the Internet from phones for years.

"The US share of the browsing market has grown as an increasing number of phones come with bigger screens and service contracts that include unlimited internet access," said Adam Kerr, VP of Bango North America at Bango. "We fully expect the US will overtake the UK in this ranking as early as this month."

The top five countries accessing the mobile web via Bango in July 2008 were:

1. UK at 19.35%

2. US at 18.88%

3. India at 10.82%

4. South Africa at 8.82%

5. Indonesia at 4.08%
