Communication spending down


by David Allen

Telecom customers seem to be getting a good deal these days if a report by the regulator Ofcom is anything to go on.

The conclusion is that the average UK consumer used over seven hours of their spare time every day last year watching the TV, using the phone, surfing the net or using another service within the same sector.

In the last six years computer use within the home has risen by over four times, whereas mobile usage has only risen by two times.

The overall sense that is found from the report is that consumers in the UK are getting more for less, as the average communications spend for a UK household in 2007 is £93.63 per month; this is down by £1.53 on the previous year.

However, out of all the communications equipment that the average UK home has available it is still the TV that comes out on top as being the most popular, with an average of three hours and thirty eight minutes being viewed every day in 2007.
