In a survey of 4,000 US consumers 18 and older in the last quarter of 2012. Internet-connected devices being counted in the survey were desktops and laptops with broadband devices, smartphones, tablets, video game consoles, HDTVs directly connected, Blu-ray players and boxes for streaming media like a Roku. The report says that U.S. homes boast 425 million internet-connected devices compared to a population of 315 million. The breakdown of the devices are:
Desktops & laptops 183.8 million
Smartphones 133 million
Video game consoles 39 million
Tablets 31.8 million
HDTVs directly connected 16 million
Blu-ray players 12.9 million

It would be the same here and other countries too I would imagine. Many of us have several devices connected to the internet. Off the top of my head in this household I can think of twelve.

Just another load of BS that survey's are good at churning up.
