WhatsApp is the most popular messaging app among UK adults
UK communications regulator Ofcom has published a report looking at the use of online communication services. The report reveals that WhatsApp is the most popular messaging app among UK adults, with 76% of respondents having used it in the past three months.
Lord Michael Grade will take over as chair of UK communications regulator Ofcom in May 2022.
Glasgow-based Sign Language Interactions has been approved by Ofcom to provide the forthcoming British Sign Language emergency video relay service in the UK.
UK communications regulator Ofcom has fined O2 £150,000 for failing to provide accurate and complete information during an investigation. It follows a £10.5 million fine for the network earlier this year.
Smartphone usage almost four times greater than computer
Ofcom's Online Nation 2021 report shows that adults in the UK spent 3 hours and 37 minutes online each day in 2020. That’s over an hour longer than people in Germany and France – but an hour less than adults in the USA.
