It will come as no surprise that a new StatCounter analysis of internet access methods finds that at least 61 percent of internet sessions are initiated on a mobile phone, just about 36 percent from a desktop PC. Mobile is the way most people get access to the internet across Asia. 

On a global basis, a majority of consumers access the Internet from a mobile device or tablet, though that is not the case in the United Kingdom, Australia, or United States, StatCounter data also shows.

Separating mobile from tablet data, desktop instances still outnumber mobile sessions, though. Desktop sessions represented about 49 percent of Internet usage in October 2016, while mobile instances represented 47 percent. Tablet sessions added another five percent of access activity.
