Smartphone are becoming more valuable

Overall, online visits to U.S. websites have been flat for the past three years, ADI found. And, given that a whopping 76.2% of the U.S. population was already connected to the internet as of 2016, getting new users is not the solution. The companies have to fight for the same pool of consumers. So they need to embrace the shift to smartphone to stay relevant and be competitive.
