Britons Spend More Time On Tech Than Asleep

Britons spend more time using technology devices than they do sleeping, research suggests.

Communications regulator Ofcom said UK adults spend an average of eight hours and 41 minutes a day on media devices, compared with the average night’s sleep of eight hours and 21 minutes.

Almost four hours a day are spent watching TV according to Ofcom’s survey of 2,800 UK adults and children.

TV and radio remain popular despite the growth of digital media, it found.

One analyst said this proved that “it’s still early in the digital revolution”.
