The findings were revealed in the research firm's Mobile Youth Around the World study, and revealed that 46 per cent of UK mobile users aged 15-24 had used the mobile internet within the past 30 days.
Downloading apps was the second most popular activity among the surveyed users, with a quarter of all respondents saying they did so in the past month.
"Among European youth, those in the UK are more likely to use mobile internet, with over 20 per cent more usage than other European countries," read the report.
By contrast, only 20 per cent of German respondents in the same age bracket had used the mobile internet in the same time, compared to 21 per cent in Spain and 24 per cent in Italy.
Email and instant messaging were also popular, with 23 per cent and 22 per cent UK correspondents using them respectively during the surveyed period.
