Most Danish children get first mobile phone at age 8

Friday 21 August 2015 | 12:03 CET | News
Telia Denmark said Danish children usually get their first mobile phone when they are eight years old, according to a survey it commissioned from YouGov. However, most respondents consider age ten to be a more suitable age to start having one's own handset. Age 8 is the second class in Danish schools. Telia said it sees a surge in sales of child-friendly mobile phones towards the start of every academic year. It added that it has drawn up two documents about sensible use of mobiles, one for children and one for teenagers. These are available on its website.
