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.

The operator of the future won’t need a SIM card to make calls or connect to the internet

Posted on 2/25/2015 by Communications Team

That’s what young Spaniards aged between 16 and 35 years of age believe, according to the results of the latest survey we conducted in collaboration with IPSOS.

71.3% of respondents claimed to know the meaning of the term “cloud telephony”, which goes to show young people’s interest in new tehnology and the communication of the future.

When asked about VoIP calls, they couldn’t decide whether these are the calls of the present or the future, as they’re already a reality. And talking of the future, those surveyed suggested that next up for the latest generation of smartphones would be the following: no need for a built-in SIM card to make calls or connect to the internet, devices with an infinite battery life and holographic video calls.
