French households are becoming increasingly connected, according to a new study from research organisation Mediametrie.
As of the first quarter of 2016, the average French home had an average of 6.4 screens in their homes.
Usage is dominated by the mobile phone with 96% of households holding such a device, followed by the computer on 84% and connected TV 56%. Tablets (45%) can be found in almost half of households.
It comes as no surprise that almost three quarters of those who accessed the internet did so from their mobile phone.
However just 35% did so from a tablet and 36% from a TV. It might be expected that at least the amount of surfing from the tablet might be higher.
Age plays a part, but it’s not just the 15 to 24 year olds born with a screen in their hands that is increasing its use, but also the over 65s, who are increasingly using their mobiles on the internet.
