This market update analyses the UK market for mobile phones. With 78.5 million mobile handset connections and a further 5.2 million mobile broadband subscriptions in 2014, mobile ownership throughout the UK is significant.

The report examines the increasingly important role of smartphone devices in the UK. As these devices contain more advanced computing capability and connectivity than traditional ‘feature phones’ - with functions ranging from voice and messaging to media players, radio receivers, cameras, games consoles and Internet connectivity - these phones have proliferated among consumers and businesses.

The advanced nature of these devices has also led to greater usage of a wider range of communication channels, including instant messaging (IM), Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), picture and video messaging and social messaging, alongside traditional voice and text messaging.
