Question: The chart below shows the total number of minutes (in billions) of telephone call in the UK, divided into three categories, from 1995-2002.
Summarise the information by selecting a reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The given graph compares the amount of time of three call types in the UK, namely local – fixed line, national and international – fixed line and mobiles, during the period 1995-2005.
Overall, the number of minutes of mobiles and national and international – fixed line significantly grew from 1995 to 2002. Meanwhile, local-fixed line always had the highest number of minutes in the projected period.
It can be seen from the chart that the amount of time of mobiles experienced a dramatic rise in the eight-year period, from only under 5 to about 45 billion of minutes. Likewise, the figure for national and international – fixed line gradually increased from over 35 billion of minutes in 1995 to over 60 billion of minutes in 2002.
On the other hand, there was a significant growth in the number of minutes of local-fixed line during the first five years, by about 20 billion of minutes. After that, the next three-year period saw a rapid decline in the figure for local-fixed line before that reached to over 70 billion of minutes in 2002.
