Communication nation - facts and figures

Talking, texting, listening, watching and browsing - British people are doing it more but spending less to do so, says Ofcom's report into the technologies that keep us communicating.
The average British household now spends £93.63 a month on their communication services - a fall in real spending for the fifth year in a row. The reduction was largely due to cuts in the cost of telecommunications services as competition bites.
The fall happened, said Ofcom, despite the fact that Britons are using more services for longer than ever before.
