In 2010-2010 there was a decrease in the average monthly cellphone expense. The number dropped to NIS 311 from NIS 390 per family, according to the Central Bureau of Statistics.
When divided into salary grades, however, the cut-down was felt most by high earners. The top 10 grades reduced the expense by 34%, while those in the median salary brackets only had it reduced by 16%. (Avital Lahav)
