Young Spaniards: ‘Is it better not to call when you are abroad?’

Posted on 9/11/2015 by Communication Team

Summer is ending and we’re wondering how young Spaniards have been using their cell phones: calling more or less than other years, connecting to the internet when abroad or not, disconnecting during the holidays… These are the results we’ve obtained:

Half of those surveyed confirm that they never disconnect their cell phone during their holiday (53%), compared with 3% who do and 44% who disconnect it “for short whiles.”

Of the 17.7% of people surveyed who went abroad, more than half (64.5%, representing 11.5% of the total number) indicated that they avoid making calls outside of Spain as they are very expensive, while only 23.7% (4% of the total number surveyed) said that they made more calls than in other years. The rest made calls, but less than previous years.

The 35.5% of surveyed individuals who said they did make calls while on holiday abroad highlighted that the majority of calls were Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls. A total of 59.4% of those calls were made using the internet, meaning that the use of new technology in this field is a reality today, given that the number of VoIP calls surpasses that of traditional calls.
