Sydney, Apr 15 : When it comes to surfing the web on mobile phones, people Down Under are quite reluctant to do so, a new survey has found.
And the reasons why 91 per cent of the total respondents don't use their phone for accessing are - it costs too much or offers a poor user experience, the survey found.
The survey was released by Sony Ericsson and 3 mobile.
Three-quarters of respondents said search engine sites and email were the most valuable to access while on the move, with travel and timetables sites (67 per cent), and news and current affairs sites (63 per cent) also popular, reports Sydney Morning Herald.
Proving that more people want to be online wherever they are, 53 per cent said they would like to access the internet when out and about, 45 per cent while on holiday, 23 per cent while commuting, and 11 per cent when out with friends.
The survey also showed that accessing the Internet on a mobile phone isn't just for the young, with 63 per cent of 25-49 year olds saying they would increase usage if they had cheap and easy mobile Internet access, compared to 75 per cent of 16-24 years olds.
