Not withstanding the increase in uptake of mobile phones in Australia, fixed line phones remain in extensive use. The Australian population is one of the highest users of fixed line phones in the world. In the absence of any models appropriate to this domain, a model for uptake and usage of established technology, and in particular fixed lines is proposed. The findings of this study revealed that the variables that influence drivers to use fixed lines differed from those that predict the use of mobile phones. The model also explores the contribution of a new proposed predictor variable towards the continued use of technology - subjective newness.
