The bar chart illustrates data on changes in the minute for three types of telephone calls in England between 1995 and 2002.
Overall, the number of two categories, national and international – fixed line and mobiles, climbed, while that of local – fixed line declined. Also, local – fixed line was by far the most common mean throughout the period.
In 1995, the use of local – fixed calls represented about 70 billion minutes, which was precisely double the approximate 38 billion of the runner-up, calls for domestic and international calls. Meanwhile, the figure for mobiles was lower vastly, at just 3 billion, accounting for the lowest point of the whole bar chart.
Throughout the 8-year period, the minutes for local calls were still higher than those of the rest, although there was a slight downturn after peaking at exactly 90 billion in 1999. Gradually rising over the remainder of the period, the number of national and international calls ended up with negligible over than 60 billion minutes. In terms of the general upward trend, mobiles saw a jump in the number of calls to 45 billion minutes in 2002.
