Internet users in Canada still prefer conducting finance-related digital activities on desktops and laptops, according to RateHub. Eighty-two percent of users on the RateHub network use them, far ahead of the share using mobile devices.
Mobile device usage has grown substantially since 2013 when it comes to internet users in Canada comparing financial products. In 2013, a quarter of internet users on the RateHub network used a mobile device to compare products; by 2015, that figure had risen to 37%.
