The Digital Consumer TGI infographic

Record number of Brits over 55 now own smartphones and tablets

Research from Kantar Media TGI shows that over 55 year olds in Britain are becoming increasingly tech savvy, with a 10% point increase in the number who have a smartphone and a 9% point increase in the number who have a tablet, compared to last year.

27% of over 55s now own a smartphone and 15% now own a tablet. Unsurprisingly, these figures are significantly smaller than those for people aged 15-34 years old, with 82% of people in that age bracket owning a smartphone and 29% a tablet.

When asked about internet usage, the Kantar Media TGI data shows a high number of older people are now using the internet for things like: emails, paying bills and comparing prices.
