Speaking about the results the Managing Director of rightmobilephone.co.uk, Neil McHugh said,

"As someone based in the South I was amazed at the results but maybe it could be because us southerners spend more time face to face with our mums than on the phone to them".

He continued, "this piece of research has really helped us to identify the types of deals and offers that we should be targeting specific regions with. What has been really interesting is the fact that for many of the guys we spoke to we could see that they spent more time on the phone to their mums than they do to their partners or wife and as for poor old Dads, they hardly seem to get a look in".
