Of the over 1,000 people questioned, almost 40 percent said they would drop their fixed-line broadband services in favour of a high-speed mobile broadband provider. A total of 17 percent said they had no plans to use 4G mobile broadband at all, and 45 percent said they would stick with home broadband but also take advantage of the faster mobile speeds of a 4G network.
