Three-quarters of Britons 'want swift 4G rollout'
Three-quarters of the UK population want 4G services to be rolled out as soon as possible, according to research commissioned by Everything Everywhere.
The operator has lodged an application to become the first UK operator to provide a 4G service, if Ofcom gives it the go-ahead to refarm a chunk of its spectrum. The survey, which was carried out by YouGov, found 82% said new technology such as 4G networks would protect jobs and help Britain stay competitive.
Everything Everywhere CEO Olaf Swantee said: 'Consumers are calling for the fast and reliable broadband that 4G LTE can provide – and they want it now. With nearly three dozen countries, including many parts of Europe, Asia and America having already rolled out 4G, it is imperative that the UK moves forward with building a 21st century digital infrastructure as soon as possible.'
