Dutch kids are messaging mad

14 Apr 2005

A recent study has found that almost three-quarters of young people in the Netherlands now have mobile phones. The mobileYouth 2005 report from the Wireless World Forum has found that 73.9% of young people between the ages of five and 24 have cellular handsets. The average monthly spend in this age bracket is EUR31.3, only slightly lower than the overall national average of EUR32.3. Non-voice services are particularly popular among the younger age group, with more than 30% of young people’s spending going on text and picture messaging.
