Over the last six years up to September 2011 there has been an increasing trend in the number of people that own a mobile phone and do not have a home telephone connection.
In the year ending in September the research from Roy Morgan Mobile Phone Monitor showed that 17 per cent of Australians of 14 years and older who own a handset don't have a landline connection.
Industry director of mobile, internet and technology at Roy Morgan Research Andrew Braun said this applies to 41 per cent of respondents among mobile phone users aged between 20-29.
“While the number of mobile phone users has been increasing over time, there has been a rapid growth of users who do not have a home telephone connection,” he continued.
Research conducted by IDC recently suggested that the mobile phone market in the world has grown by 6.1 per cent year on year in the fourth quarter of 2011.
