Abstract

This paper examines barriers to communication in telephone traffic. It is found that telephone communication between The Netherlands and most other European countries is about 30% of the level it would achieve if these countries happened to be regions in the same nation. For communication with Eastern Europe, the even smaller figure of about 4% resulted. It is also shown that telephone calls are closely related to other kinds of spatial interaction, especially trade flows.
