The naked truth about using the phone
By Paul Tingey
Telecoms can be a somewhat dry subject at times so when I recently
tripped across a news release which made me giggle I decided it was my
responsibility to share it with you.
BT recently carried out a survey (Starkers Talkers)
asking what British people did while they were using the phone. Most

British people are happy to talk on the telephone while naked in the
privacy of their own home.
Before I go further I should save the blushes of myself and other
Brits by adding that, whilst the results are from a survey of British
phone users, I can think of no good reason why they would not be
similarly valid in other parts of the world. I do not believe that the
British would be any more predisposed to naked telephony than other
