ShopTalk poll 01.22.14: Are you considering switching to a wireless-only household?

Poll

Are you considering switching to a wireless-only household?

This study released Dec. 2013 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the number of American homes with only wireless telephones continues to grow. More than 39 percent of homes used only wireless phones during the first half of 2013. That was up 1.2 percent from the second half of 2012, according to the CDC report.

CDC also reported nearly one out of six homes received all or almost all calls on their mobiles, despite also having a landline.

What about you? Have you switched, or are you considering switching, to a wireless-only household? Take our poll to the right.
