One in Five Households Are Cellphone Only

According to a report by the Center for Disease Control (no, this has nothing to do with swine flu), one out of every five families has ditched landlines entirely for cellphones. I find that number a bit low, but what do I know? I'm deranged from swine flu because the CDC decided to tell me about telephone lines instead of top secret inoculation bunkers.

Considering broadband penetration in the US is only about 50% or so? I'm not surprised.
