The CDC just released a report saying that 20 percent of households in America are now strictly wireless. Are you in one of these families? Or is keeping your home phone number that you’ve had for years the only thing keeping you from becoming all wireless? Now is the best time to forward your well known home phone number to your cell phone and save money by cutting out an unneeded service. Here are some other stats from the CDC’s report:
-More than three in five adults living only with unrelated adult roommates (60.6%) were in households with only wireless telephones. This is the highest prevalence rate among the population subgroups examined.
-Adults living in the South (21.3%) and Midwest (20.8%) were more likely than adults living in the Northeast (11.4%) or West (17.2%) to be living in households with only wireless telephones.
-Nearly two in five adults renting their home (39.2%) had only wireless telephones. Adults renting their home were more likely than adults owning their home (9.9%) to be living in households with only wireless telephones.
There’s never been a better time to dump that landline and forward your number to your mobile device!
