Quarter of EU homes use mobile phones only

europephoens.jpeg A quarter of European Union households use mobile phones only, with a fifth now making calls over the Internet. Reuters reports.

"The European Commission's survey of 27,000 homes in the 27-nation bloc found that 24 percent were using mobiles only.

The figure in the 10 ex-communist new member states was 39 percent as governments there found it cheaper to make the leap to mobile rather than upgrading old fixed-line networks.

But Finland -- home of handset maker Nokia -- came in at 61 percent."
