US turning its back on landlines

US turning its back on landlinesNews brought to you by Skint Tariffs. Providers of price comparison for cheap international calls.

People making cheap calls to the US will be extremely unlikely to ring a landline as many people in the country have turned away from house phones completely, research has shown.

More than 20 million households in the US have switched to only using wireless networks, which is 17 per cent of all homes with phones, according to figures from Nielsen.

Just four years ago, only 4.3 per cent of homes didn't have landlines, but this number has now quadrupled, the LA Times reports.

Alison LeBreton, vice president of client services for Nielsen Mobile, commented: "As wireless network quality improves and unlimited calling becomes increasingly pervasive, we expect the trend toward wireless substitution to continue.

"In a tightening economy every dollar counts and consumers are more and more comfortable with the idea of ditching their landline connection."

Money saving measures could be partially behind the move, as landlines cost $40 (£22) per month in the US on average.

Mobiles could soon be able to work almost everywhere in the UK, with an initiative to provide coverage on underground systems recently being announced.
