In Latin America , particularly in Brazil , there are few studies about the profile of Internet users who use mobile media , especially with regard to usage patterns and online activities. The objective of this paper is to discuss the present scenario of growth of Internet use through mobile phones in Brazil between 2008 and 2013 in order to understand the role of socioeconomic variables on the use of mobile Internet. Starting from the use of this ratio analysis with home access to the Internet, the article seeks to establish a profile of Internet users by phone. In addition to the survey of socioeconomic variables , the activities online through mobile devices are analyzed. The analysis will be carried out from the time series of microdata from ICT Households, produced since 2005 by the Regional Centre of Studies for the Development of the Information Society ( Cetic.br ), which is linked to the Information and Coordination BR Point ( NIC.br ) and is part of the structure of the Internet Steering Committee in Brazil ( CGI.br ).
