In Hungary, the average age at which children receive their first phone is 6 years. They use it for playing and watching games until the age of 8. At the age of 8, they get a SIM card for their phone.
9 out of 10 children regularly use the internet on their phones. Half of the parents give their child a mobile phone so that they can call for help if they have a problem, according to telex.hu. Most parents fear that their child is too young to use a mobile phone. Many are concerned that their children would watch adult content on their phones or take time away from study and exercise.
Only 5 percent of children aged 10-11 do not have any digital device.
Yettel and Xplora interviewed 500 people in their research. The survey is representative by municipalities and regions.
