Mobile Phones Now Outnumber Landlines in UK Telecom Market


03/09/2007

For the first time ever, more households in the UK now have a mobile phone (93%) than a landline connection (90%), according to a recent study by Britain’s telecom regulator, Ofcom.

Mobile phones currently account for about one-third of all calls in the UK, and are put to numerous other uses, Ofcom’s report says. 41% of mobile handset owners now use their phones to take pictures, while 21% play games, 13% access the internet, and 10% listen to the radio.

Despite all these extras, however, competition has actually begun to drive phone bills lower, Ofcom says. The average British household spent £92.65/month on communications services last year, down from £94.03/month in 2005.
