VODAFONE SURVEY SAYS THAT TWO THIRDS OF UK BUSINESSES DO NOT USE 4G SERVICES
A survey of UK businesses conducted for operator Vodafone by YouGov has revealed that two thirds of UK businesses don’t use 4G services and two fifths have no intention of doing so.
Vodafone says the majority of British businesses do not currently have 4G or “an understanding of the extensive capabilities of 4G” and the “benefits it can bring to business performance”. Vodafone commissioned the survey among more than among 1,200 senior decision makers from British businesses and the public sector, to gauge 4G adoption and their perception of 4G.
The survey showed that 64 percent of respondents said their business or organisation does not have 4G, while 41 percent of those have no current plans to adopt it.
Phil Mottram, UK enterprise director of Vodafone UK, said: “Businesses need to be ready to take advantage of the tools and technologies that can give them the competitive edge today and in the future. Now is the time for those businesses which are yet to invest in 4G to do so, and to start benefiting from its full potential.
“To help decision makers see the viable business case in upgrading to 4G, Vodafone is committed to helping businesses understand how 4G can benefit them based on their business functions, needs and priorities using the greater speed and capacity that 4G can provide.
“Whilst the perception of cost is still stopping businesses from taking the step towards 4G, the significant knowledge gap of what it can offer UK businesses is a challenge.”
