“Mobile banking is struggling to attract new customers, but those already using it are doing so more often, according to a survey from RateWatch, a banking data service owned by TheStreet Inc.

The use of mobile banking, albeit uneven with some users and across various age and income ranges, continues to increase, according to the aforementioned study. And some of the high-level findings in this study mirror similar Mercator Advisory Group studies, showing continued growth potential in the near-to-intermediate term.
