Ofcom survey shows fixed-line usage dropping

Ofcom's annual review of the UK's TV, radio, and telecommunications usage has been published. Although an increase in rural broadband usage has grabbed much of the attention, the survey also shows that an increasing number of people are living without fixed-line telephones at home. In general, 87% of UK homes have a fixed-line phone - down 3% from last year. An average 12% of households rely on mobile phones, with Belfast and Liverpool (23% and 21% respectively) having a particularly high number of mobile-only households. [PDF summary]
