15% of Dutch consumers have 4G device, 9% use 4G services

Monday 28 October 2013 | 17:09 CET | Author: Sanne de Bruyckere | Background
Around 15 percent of Dutch consumers say they have a handset that supports 4G, and 9 percent actually use the 4G network. The most important reason to not yet use 4G is it's not available in their area. Usage should increase though, as around a third of Dutch consumers expect to adopt 4G within the next two years, according to the latest survey by the Telecompaper Consumer Panel.
