As the cost of using mobile phones drops, more consumers are choosing to cut the cord, according to Forrester Research. At the end of 2005, approximately 8% of U.S. households that subscribe to mobile phone service had dropped their land-line phones, compared with 5% at the end of 2004, Forrester says. In addition, the average age of cord-cutters has risen slightly, with more users in the 35-44 bracket choosing to go wireless.
