Cord cutters hit 50 percent.
A new study indicates that fully half of Americans are living in a household that uses only or mostly mobile phones — but the remainder is slow to convert.
Of the more than 20,000 households interviewed, just over half used wireless (i.e. cellular) phones for all or nearly all phone calls — 35.9 percent were wireless-only, and 15.9 percent had a landline but rarely used it. That adds up to 51.8 percent of all households, which is less than 2 percent more than for the same period last year.
