In addition to increased internet time, 91% of Vietnamese respondents own a smartphone, up from 82% in the 2014 survey, and over nine out of 10 Vietnamese are dual screeners, or people who use two devices at once.

Singapore remains the most connected market, with internet users averaging 25 hours and nine minutes online per week, while Vietnam and the Philippines tied for second.
