Statista-Infographic_2072_landline-phones-in-the-united-states-It has been a speedy transition over the last 10 years. To illustrate this dramatic change, Statista has created a chart using data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Since 2004, the number of U.S. households with a working landline phone has plummeted from 92.7% to 58.1%. During the same period the number of households that rely on cellphones alone has risen to 39.4%.
