Metric: 3/4 of U.S. adults are wireless subs

The latest report from Harris Interactive claims that about 74 percent of U.S. adults subscribe to a wireless service, while only 58 percent said they still have a landline service. Also, a full 24 percent of those surveyed claim they use their mobile phone as their primary line. The figures may not sound surprising now, but a mere 1.5 years ago only 9 percent of adults had cut the wire to go solo with their mobiles. At the time 5 percent were seriously considering such a move and 47 percent were somewhat considering it. It's safe to say there are more on the way.
