far we have come from the days of expensive calls to international
countries in the UK, we have seen charges slashed to the floor -
from the days it cost almost £3 per min to call the USA today where
it costs from 2p per min.
has been no better time in the UK to call a loved one or friend
in another country for pennies rather than pounds, indeed a case
study would indicate that savings today to calls in Japan, Turkey
and other countries are as great as 1% of the cost in the past.
savings we may take for granted, but these savings are not only
on landline calls, there also on Mobile Calls. In the past one may
be tempted to call a friend on holiday in a far off country , but
then shy away at the potential cost of the call to their mobile.
however all this has changed, calling a phone in Spain can be as
little as 2p per minute, this is a massive drop from what it would
have cost only a year ago.
and figures on mobile phones in the UK
mobile phone handset sales increased by 4.1% in volume in 2006.
sales for 2006 were approximately 25 million units.
phones represented nearly 80% of the Uk market
In terms of market share Nokia took the biggest share of the market
(40%), followed by Sony (25%).
