When you call a new friend: Can you call your new friends from your landline phone?
In the UK, where the majority of the population lives on land, the average phone call is made using a landline, with only around 5% made on mobile, according to the Office for National Statistics.
The UK is not alone in the world when it comes to landline landlines being used for call making, but a recent survey found that in England and Wales, the proportion of people calling their home phone from their landline fell from 13% in 2012 to 10% in 2015.
The UK is one of only three countries that still only have two landlines and the majority in the US.
While the UK has always been the home of the landline for phone calls, it is becoming increasingly common to make calls from mobile devices.
In the US, mobile phone users make more than half of all phone calls in a year.
In 2017, the US had the largest percentage of people on mobile (32%) compared to the UK (17%).
In the UK the percentage of mobile phone call making was more than double the rate in the rest of the world.
However, some people in the UK are finding the landlines are not the best way to call their friends and family.
In an article for The Times, an organisation dedicated to “caring for and empowering women and girls”, the women and gender-diverse women who work at a women’s refuge said that while the majority use the land line, they often have to switch to mobile phones to make the calls.
A spokeswoman for the women’s group said: “Many women feel they don’t have a choice, that they’re not doing enough for the people they love and that they can’t make it on the phone.”
When we have to change the way we do things, it’s so hard because we don’t know how to use the phone.
“According to the Women’s Aid Foundation, in 2016, the number of women calling from their mobile phones more than doubled from one woman per day to eight per day.
They added that while there were fewer than 10,000 women working in the sector, there were more than 4,000 people in their networks.
The organisation also said there was a “significant gender pay gap” and women were still “not compensated as fairly as their male counterparts”.
According the women, the most common reasons why women use mobile phones are to talk to a friend, to look up information on a website or to make a call to a service provider.
They said there were also calls for domestic help or to get the latest news.
