This report has been archived. Access to telecoms services could make the difference between having a job or not, applying for support, or slipping further away from the various safety nets provided by telephone support networks. Apparently the mobile phone is often one of the few worldly possessions of a homeless person. Being cut off from telecommunications services is going to seriously affect the welfare of the most vulnerable in our society. Mobile phone debt is a serious problem amongst our youngsters. Increasingly however, the attention will move away from commodity products to applications and consumer environment will become more complex and more international. This will bring it its own challenges.
