More people may be recycling used phones to take advantage of the wireless mobile internet, if a new study is to be believed.
A survey conducted by analysts at Opera, the group which supplies the Mini web browsing software, looked at the level of portable access being enjoyed by consumers all over the world.
It was revealed 29.1 million people surfed the internet using its handset-based application last month, with over 12 billion individual page visits recorded.
This figure was noted as up by 15.4 per cent on June and 223 per cent year-on-year, with Opera Mini users utilising up to 187 million MB of data across all global networks throughout July.
Jon von Tetzchner, chief executive officer for Opera, said Mini was a great way to support the current desire for the web on a portable device.
"If we want the web to be available to everyone, we need a solution that can work on almost every phone," he added
According to online app store Getjar, the software has now topped the 25 million download mark.
