This chapter explores the evolution of household expenditure with regard to ICT goods and services. Specifically, it looks at one of the most striking phenomena of the last decade: the rise of mobile communications in telecommunication services expenditure. This dimension of expenditure mirrors the massive diffusion and uptake of mobile wireless services ‐ and the variety of services on offer is increasing. SMS was an early addition to mobile telephony and its growth is now being replicated by the use of data services. Undoubtedly, the development of new technologies, services and lower prices, all driven by competition, has played a part in the increased use of communication services by households.
