Queenslanders' love of mobile phones
Almost seven-in-ten Queenslanders aged 18 years and over in October 2003 had use of a mobile phone, according to figures released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
In October 2003, an estimated 77,000 Queenslanders (4%) with the use of a mobile lived in households with no phones connected. Of these, 56% were aged 18 to 29 years.
However, the majority of Queensland adults (96%) with the use of a mobile phone, lived in households with at least one phone connection.
Of all Queensland households surveyed, approximately 95% had a phone connected in October 2003.
Most connected Queensland households (99%) had at least one phone connection able to receive standard telephone calls, even if it was used mostly for facsimile or the Internet. Approximately 82% of these households had at least one phone connection listed in the residential section of Telstra's White Pages.
