4G speeds enough for Dutch consumers - survey

Tuesday 20 September 2016 | 11:13 CET | News
Over a third of Dutch consumers don't expect to need mobile internet speeds of more than 150 Mbps as offered by LTE. Only a minority (15%) of respondents in a survey by the Telecompaper Consumer Panel said they expect to need faster download speeds within four years. A third said they don't know whether they will need such speeds in future. Dutch operators have already upgraded their networks to speeds of up to 225 Mbps in some areas, which they say is sufficient for current demand. Nearly half of Dutch consumers use 4G networks, and a majority of mobile internet traffic goes over 4G.
