Exploring SimplyMap Data: Using the Internet to Make Phone Calls

One of our favorite uses of SimplyMap is to find data that validates our general assumptions and observations. For example, in a previous blog we wrote about the growth of tablet ownership in the US and how the iPad dominates that area. It’s one thing to “know” that tablet ownership has grown, but it’s another thing to view the supporting data behind it.

This week, let’s explore another variable we presume has markedly increased in recent years  – the % of Households who used the internet to make a phone call. Let’s get started!
