EE finds 93% of firms want 4G as soon as possible
The vast majority of businesses do not want to wait for access to 4G mobile broadband networks, according to a new study.

Conducted by Coleman Parkes and commissioned by Everything Everywhere (EE), the research discovered that 93 per cent of firms surveyed want 4G technology to be deployed as soon as possible, while 94 per cent feel it is essential to protect jobs and ensure the UK remains competitive.

In addition, 86 per cent of business leaders said access to 4G will increase the productivity of their company.

More than half (52 per cent) of respondents expect super-fast mobile broadband services to result in increased adoption of flexible working.

Martin Stiven, vice president of business to business at Everything Everywhere, said: "UK businesses need 4G networks to help them be more productive and compete on the international stage."

Last month, EE released YouGov research showing that 74 per cent of British consumers want the technology to be rolled out at the earliest possible time.
