New graphic shows how different countries text, call and network.
Ever wondered whether mobile phone usage differs from country to country? Well wonder no more, as mobile operator Lebara presents a brand new infographic detailing the myriad ways in which mobile behavior varies across the globe.
The visual breakdown of how people in 18 countries text, call, tweet and consume media on their mobiles draws on data from a recent study by Pew Research Center and the United Nations.
Emphasising mobile phone trends in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Africa and the Middle East, the infographic is broken down into mobile ownership, call usage, SMS usage, media usage and social networking. It also gives a breakdown of mobile phone ownership growth over ten years, highlighting a significant growth in developing countries.
David Moffatt, CEO of Lebara Group, commented: “Mobile phones have transformed the way we live, work and socialise. What is even more exciting is the mobile revolution is accelerating, yet how devices are used country to country varies significantly.
“Usage trends help us understand how mobility is improving and simplifying healthcare and education delivery, the way we shop or bank and the options for staying in touch with family, friends and work colleagues.”
