Hispanic Teens Far Outpacing Broader Teen Market in Mobile Consumption

US Hispanic teens aged 12-17 represent 2.5 million subscribers, according to MultiMedia Intelligence. This is an increasingly important segment of wireless consumers, with a subscriber growth rate of two to three times that of the overall US teen market over the next 5 years.

Key findings regarding Hispanic teen wireless subscribers include:

*Hispanic teens represent 16% of the overall US teen market.

*By the age of 15, penetration of wireless services among US Hispanic teens is 64%

 
*By the age of 17, the penetration rate rises to 78%.
 
*The US Hispanic teen is much more likely to use advanced telephony functions than other US teens, but less likely to use their camera phone.
 
*Like the broader US teen market, Hispanic teens ask their phones to do more, from text messaging to purchasing content and feature a higher overall Average Revenue per User (ARPU).
