90% of Internet Users in Thailand Use Smartphones
The country’s smartphone users are among the most active in Southeast Asia, in terms of data consumption and daily time spent with their devices. But, as a new batch of demographic data reveals, smartphone use in Thailand tends to be influenced by factors like income and geography.

Devices Used by Internet Users in Thailand Access the Internet, March 2016 (% of respondents) According to a January 2017 release of data from the National Statistical Office of Thailand, more than 90% of internet users in the country go online via smartphone, far the exceeding rates for any other device. The second most popular device for internet access was the desktop, used by just half of internet users surveyed.

However, despite the clear importance of smartphones for digital access, the device is not equally prevalent across Thailand’s geographic regions. In the capital city of Bangkok, the country’s largest urban area, more than 70% of the overall population uses smartphones, according to the National Statistical Office.
