Consumers moving away from high-speed Internet to wireless smartphone use, which tends to be more "transient"


Fewer Americans have land-based Internet at home than they did in 2013, according to a CNN Money story by Hope King.
 
The reason is that cable or FIOS broadband is relatively expensive, and many consumers feel they get all the Internet the need on smartphones and tablets.  However, wireless Internet tends to have data limits, and tablets are not as effectively for business work or for publishing or higher-end media work or journalism.  
 
The trend comports with Google claims that websites need to pay more attention to mobile-friendliness than in the past.
