One in five Aussies prefer mobile

23 Feb 2006

One in five Australian phone users intends to scrap their fixed line service and use mobile as their sole means of telephony, according to a Newspoll survey commissioned by Vodafone Australia. The cellco says that the poll found 40% of respondents used their mobile phone as their main point of contact, whilst 22% said they would get rid of their landline and use only a mobile if they moved house. The survey results come just weeks after fixed line incumbent Telstra announced it had lost more than 100,000 landline users in the last six months of 2005.
