Talking telephone numbers

Brits are ringing up mobile phone bills of £15 billion every year, according to new research from Clerical Medical.

According to a survey of 3,000 respondents, the average Brit spends £13,250 in their lifetime on mobile phone calls, adding up to £15 billion a year as a nation on mobile charges.

In any given month we spend over £23.50 on mobile phone calls, making an annual figure of over £280 per person.

Most Brits have owned a mobile for the past five and a half years, and in that time have individually racked up tabs of just over £1,500.

Londoners and those in the South East are the most mobile savvy, with one in 10 of those surveyed having owned a phone for over 10 years. However, in the East Midlands it seems mobile phones hold less appeal, with nearly a fifth of those surveyed only buying a phone within the last year.
