"Internet versus Mobile Telephones"

The internet is a more useful form of communications technology than the mobile telephone.

What is your opinion?

The internet has changed our world significantly. Similarly, mobile telephones have facilitated dramatic developments in the way we communicate. While some people believe that mobile phones provide for the ultimate in communications utility, others contend that the internet is a more useful tool for communication.

Cell phones have revolutionized human interaction simply because they are mobile. This technology enables the user to contact anyone, anywhere at anytime. Perhaps the best example of the advantages of this mobility would be a crisis situation. Imagine you are enjoying a holiday with friends in a remote location, and there is a serious accident. A cell phone allows you to contact an ambulance and connect with a doctor which could mean the difference between life and death.

However, the internet facilitates a different kind of communication which also has its advantages. The world wide web is mainly used to send and file audio, visual and textual information while a cell phone is predominantly used for verbal interaction. The comparative benefit of the internet is the vast quantity of information that is available to the user. This information is instantaneously accessible at the click of a mouse and can be used to aid business, education or general knowledge.

In my opinion, the mobile telephone is quickly becoming more advantageous than surfing the web via a computer. These days, all the benefits of the internet are being provided on mobile telephones through cutting edge technology which means that using a computer in a fixed position is quickly becoming unnecessary.
