UK Poll: Mobile Internet Threatens Wireline

According to a poll carried out by BroadbandGenie, home broadband could be heavily impacted by a mass defection to high-speed 4G mobile broadband when it's introduced later this year.

The poll asked "Would you switch to 4G mobile broadband as a replacement for home broadband?" More than 1,000 people responded, of which almost 40% said they would drop their fixed-line service in favor of a fast mobile broadband provider. Some 17% said they had no plans to use 4G mobile broadband at all, while 45% stated they would stick with home broadband but also take advantage of the faster mobile speeds of a 4G network.
