4G expected to create 125k UK jobs
The rollout of 4G mobile broadband networks is set to provide a major boost to employment in the UK, according to technology journalist Michael Brooke.

Super-fast data networks will create approximately 125,000 jobs and stimulate about £5.5 billion of investment across the country by the end of 2020, he claimed. This will represent a boost of around five per cent to the UK's GDP.

"There is a huge amount of benefit to 4G," Mr Brooke commented.

Many of these positions will be concentrated in London, the country's business hub, but other regions are also in line to take advantage of the technology, he stressed.

"It is not just a southern concentration of jobs, there are going to be jobs created across the country," the technology expert added.

His comments come after a survey commissioned by Everything Everywhere revealed 93 per cent of UK businesses want 4G services to be rolled out as soon as possible.
