Overall, it is obvious from the chart that the total number of phoning minutes by local-fixed line stood at at the highest level over the period given. The phoning time saw a considerable increase in national and international –fixed line and mobiles.
In the year 1995, it took the British people over 72 billion minutes to call local-fixed line in total. The figures for the two others were nearly a half of that number. Mobiles were hardly used at that time, just about 20 billion.
From this year, the data for local-fixed line calling still had remained unchanged after picking to just 90 billion in 1999. There had been significant rises in using national and international-fixed line and mobile by 23billion and 43 billion respectively.
