Telecom and IT consultants Analysys are predicting half of all phone calls made in Europe will be made on our mobiles by 2008.
According to their report, Finland is the most mobile-using nation in Europe, with 74.6% of all phone calls made on the go during 2006. In Germany, 24.3% of all calls originated on mobile networks during the same period.
However, there’s a twist. This increase is not due to us making more calls on our mobiles – instead we’re relying on traditional fixed lines less. Good news for the mobile networks, but not so great for the traditional telcos.
