Lincolnshire has been revealed as the area of the UK which relies on technology the least.
196 people were surveyed in the county about their attitudes to modern gadgets and a high proportion said they could happily live without them.
The research involved 2,000 UK respondents and was conducted by Powwownow.
60% of Lincolnshire residents said they could exist when parted from their mobile phones.
In contrast, 76% of Londoners said their handset was essential to their life.
And 30% of Lincolnshire households have just one computer per family, browse the web for less than an hour each week and do not listen to music on a mobile device.
The age group most apathetic about modern technology was the over-55s, where the figure happy to live without their mobile rises to 80%.
