MessagingUsers consume most data to access the Web, log on to social networking sites and catch up with friends and family through instant messaging, according to a report by UCWeb.

UC Browser, India’s No.1 mobile browser with over 48% market share as per StatCounter, released a comprehensive analysis and insights into behaviour of mobile users in India.

Decoding the usage pattern, the report said almost 30% of users install only 10 or less apps on their mobile phones. Music remains the most downloaded web content followed by video.

Internet penetration in India, although encouraging, remains poor. Over 80% of users belong to 6 key states alone. Maharashtra and Delhi are leading India’s brush with mobile internet followed by West Bengal at a close third and the key southern states at the fourth place. Mumbai, Delhi & Kolkata are the top cities in India using UC Browser.

Over 65% people use a phone costing less than `10,000 to surf internet on their mobiles, according to the report.

Kenny Ye, MD, UCWeb India said, “By leveraging on its huge user base across the country, UC Browser has been able to offer a panorama view of the industry along with an insight into Indian users’ browsing behaviour.”
