The Reasons Why Mobiles are Replacing Landlines

By: Karl Bantleman
There was a time when the majority of people did not own a mobile phone but that time is certainly not now with over 90% of the UK having one. As technology improves by the day and deals get better do we really have a good use for landlines?

One of the main reasons people stuck with a landline was because of the excessive charges to ring from a mobile, however, this has all changed now as we do not have to wait until 6pm to make a phone call that will avoid charges. Providers have sorted this problem out and many deals have an allocation of free minutes available to the user. With mobiles you can now call local and international numbers for free whereas a landline deal may only include local numbers.

With many of us living holistic lives, we need to be easily accessible and have the facility to call anybody at anytime and how do we do this? The answer is with mobile phones. The flexibility and freedom of being contactable at all times of the day (whether that is a good or bad thing I'm not sure) is a positive for many people.

Advances in technology mean our mobiles are not just for making calls, we can now send emails and surf the internet and this is a clear advantage over a landline. In the past, batteries would not last long enough but again, new technologies mean mobiles can last a days talking without running out of battery. There is also more choice as you can choose between monthly and pay as you go mobile phones depending on what you want from your mobile.

From a financial point of view, we are all trying to save a little extra and not having a landline would save you money. The chances are that we could all live without a landline but could you live without your mobile? Find the best deals on cheap mobile phones online and compare all providers and their deals.

As mobile phones become more popular, there will be less of a need for a landline. Customers can find great deals on monthly and pay as you go mobile phones online and if you are on budget there are some good quality cheap mobile phones available too.
