    Homes in the United States are dropping their landlines and opting for Cellphones only according to a recent CDC study. Four out of 10 households use cellphones only, which is twice the rate from just five years ago. Mike Stobbe of AP recently reported for ABC News, 4 in 10 US Homes Are Cellphone Only, Skip Landline.

    The CDC survey released today, July 8, 2014, is based on in-person interviews in more than 21,000 homes during the last half of 2013. Some of the facts that the researchers found include:

    • Not all homes have phones: About 3 percent have no landline or cellphone.
    • About 9 percent have only landlines, and about 48 percent have both. Five years ago, 17 percent had only landlines, and about 60 percent had landlines and cellphones

    • Younger people rely more on cellphones: Nearly two-thirds of people in their late 20s live in households with only cellphones. Only 14 percent of people 65 and older use only cellphones.

    • The Midwest is the most wireless region: About 44 percent live in cellphone-only homes. The South and West were nearly as high. In the Northeast, 25 percent live in cellphone-only households.

    While Millennials and Generation Y continue to lead the trend to lose their landline for a modern mobile life, the CDC reports that 38% of adults in the U.S. live in households that have only a cell phone. With this continued decrease in landlines, a strong indoor cell phone signal becomes a necessity rather than a luxury.

    A recent Consumer Reports survey found top reasons for keeping landlines to include: price, reliability, habit and quality. zBoost provides cellular signal boosters for everyone, at virtually every price point and can help consumers finally cut the landline and still stay connected,
