A significant level of growth has been seen by envirofone

The number of people recycling mobile phones for cash has helped drive up web traffic in the telecommunications sector, a new study has found.

According to the most recent analytics from the Nielsen Company, web users have boosted the market by 58 per cent in the last year, with envirofone singled out as one group that performed particularly well.

It was advised the site received almost 616,000 unique visits during July - an increase of 429 per cent on the same month in 2008.

The report also showed interest in the latest mobile phones to be high, with some of the largest firms seeing strong growth in the number of hits they received during the period.

Nokia saw year-on-year increases of 203 per cent, while Vodafone recorded a 91 per cent rise. O2 also witnessed growth of 79 per cent in the last 12 months.

One reason mobile recycling customers may have for logging on to the latter company's site is that it is the official Apple iPhone 3G S operator in the UK.
