The share of Dutch consumers with 4G devices has nearly doubled in the past year, from 27 percent in August 2014 to 51 percent in September this year. Over the same period, the use of 4G networks nearly tripled, from 12 percent to 33 percent. Among those not yet using 4G, 8 percent expect to switch to LTE in the next six months, according to the latest results from the Telecompaper Consumer Panel.
