The number of people using mobile internet has increased over the past year, according to new research.

The latest survey by Nielsen Mobile has found that improved handset technology has led to an uptake of mobile internet in the UK.

Growth in the UK is second only to the US, with 12.9 per cent of all mobile phone-using Britons accessing the internet on their handsets.

Italy ranked third in the Nielsen poll with 11.9 per cent of mobile subscribers using internet applications.

Mobile internet users in the UK visit an average of 5.5 different websites per month, with the iPhone one of the most popular devices for mobile browsing.

Some 82 per cent of mobile internet users across the globe use the Apple handset.

In the UK, the Nokia N70 and N95 are the most popular handsets for consumers who use mobile internet services.

The report suggested that mobile internet provides "must continue to improve" connection speeds to keep up with the growth in subscribers.
