Time Spent Online: July - December 2016

Posted on: Tuesday 11 April 2017

The IAB and UKOM publish figures every 6 months on how long people actively spend online each day, to bring clarity to the market by removing any confusion around the conflicting sources claiming to measure time online.

UKOM, the official cross-industry standards body that measures online audiences using approved comScore data, revealed that the average Briton spent 48% of their online time on smartphones, 38% on desktop / laptops and 14% on tablets. Methodology change for 2016: 18+ number used as comScore currently only measures over 18's on mobile. 18+ average time spent online per person per day = 3 hours, 8 mins. This data is based on an average figure from July-June 2016 in the UK.
