SPOTLIGHT: Landlines subs down in Hungary

The decline of landline connections isn't limited to North America by any stretch of the imagination. The National Telecommunications Authority of Hungary reports that landline subs fell by 17,000 lines in the month of November, to 3.1 million lines total.

In October 61.9 percent of Hungarian households had a landline. November closed with 61.5 percent of households still having landlines, and the numbers continue to decline gradually month after month. 

Interestingly, those households with landlines spent more time on the phone in November, by about 6 million minutes.
