Ofcom have published a report, according to a BBC article, on the use of communication in the UK.
Britons are spending more time using communications services but paying less for them, says an Ofcom report.
Every day in 2007, the average consumer spent 7 hours and 9 minutes watching TV, on the phone, using the internet or using other services, it says.
Since 2002, mobile use has doubled and PC and laptop use has grown fourfold, says the watchdog’s annual review.
Though with falling costs of internet and mobile phones, though the UK is using more comms stuff, it is in fact spending less…
But the average UK household spend on communications in 2007 was £93.63 a month – a fall of £1.53 on 2006.
This certainly reiterates that our learners are well versed in the use of digital communication tools and therefore would probably be quite at home using them for learning.
