A few weeks ago, we asked users about how they used mobile broadband to access the Internet, with some interesting results.
Out of over 1,000 responses, quite unsurprisingly when most users were accessing the Internet away from a fixed broadband connection, they were doing so on their mobile phone. However, 34% of users were still using a laptop/computer whilst on the move with only 4% using a tablet. Despite several stories of unexpected mobile bills due to data usage, over 4 in 10 people still don’t check their mobile phone bill at the end of each month. We very much welcome the fact 8 in 10 seem to know what your download usage allowance is, although we do wonder how much of that is about the type of user visiting our site ;)
