14/07/2008

Europeans are increasingly taking advantage of healthy competition in the Continent’s telecommunications industry, according to a recent EU-wide survey of 27,000 households in 27 countries.

Almost a quarter (24%) of households have now given up their fixed-line telephone subscriptions in favour of mobile phones, with Finland (61%), Portugal (48%), and new Member States in eastern Europe (39%) showing the highest number of cord cutters.

VoIP internet telephony services are also growing in popularity, as 22% of households with internet connections now make some of their telephone calls online. This figure is especially high in Latvia (58%), Lithuania (51%), the Czech Republic (50%), Poland (49%), and Bulgaria (46%).
