By Jeremy Iston
The Ever-Growing demand (1) smartphones has placed an unexpected strain on the world’s mobile phone networks.
Smartphones are full of applications designed to send and receive emails, surf the Internet, watch online videos and access social networking sites.

Others continously stream information or stay logged on for hours while downloading videos or messages. This has the effect (8) monopolising the network and slowing down speeds for other users. Phones crowded (9) these data-hungry applications are selling at a phenomenal rate and are popular (10) many young people.

The alternative is to build more transmitters. We may be fond (15) our mobile phones, but do we really want more of these eyesores cluttering up our cities and countryside?
