Kerry people spend less time on the phone

A new survey has revealed that Kerry people are thrifty when it comes to using their landline phones. Residents in the county make the second lowest number of calls per month in the country. On average Kerry residents spend just over five hours per month using their landline, which is almost half an hour less than the national average.While we make the second lowest number of calls per month, we spend the 12 seconds longer than the national average chatting. These results from Eircom contrast sharply with the Dubs who spend 19% more time on the phone each month, which breaks down as one hour and two minutes more than us. Commenting on the results Eircom Marketing Director Michael Kennedy said it`s clear that Kerry people get to the point when on the phone and that the Dubs really do talk for Ireland.
