Study Finds Brits Hooked on Wi-Fi as Simplifydigital.Com Reveals Broadband Deals with Free Wireless Routers

  • The UK is addicted to Wi-Fi, recent study finds;
  • Wi-Fi becomes a deal breaker when deciding where to dine, shop and interact;
  • Simplifydigital.com lists broadband deals with free Wi-Fi routers.

According to a recent study conducted by popular broadband provider, Plusnet, the UK is addicted to wireless broadband with half (49 per cent) of those surveyed saying that public Wi-Fi was essential.

In addition, the study found that Wi-Fi was considered a deal breaker when consumers chose what hotel to check in to, shopping centre to splash out at and even pub to have a pint at.

Moreover, roughly a fifth of Brits would rather go to Wi-Fied restaurants and coffee shops with 29 per cent claiming they felt they had to be connected to the World Wide Web all the time.

Chris Mizon, Product Expert at Simplifydigital.com commented:

 ”With the rise of the smartphone and social networking people feel the need to be constantly in the loop about everything what's going on around them.

“It does not surprise me that consumers think that public Wi-Fi access is essential – the demand for wireless broadband services has escalated throughout the last few years.

“Wi-Fi is no longer a luxury but a necessity in the comfort of your own home and everywhere you go.”
