  1. Hi.

    I find it interesting that the UK is ranked 20 whereas the Falklands, such a small amount of people all with a high income and a need to be communicated, are ranked 18. I suspect that if they were to abolish the C&W monopoly the usage in the Falklands would rise considerably.

  2. Alex,
    You may be right!
