Simplifydigital.com reveals top broadband bundles as Brits confess their internet dependency

Almost 70 per cent of 5,000 Brits said that access to a broadband connection was fundamental to keep up with today's digital rat race.


This means that seven out of ten thought that broadband was crucial, while only 35 per cent felt the same way about financial and life covers.


Chris Mizon, Product Expert at Simplifydigital.com, commented on the findings:


"These findings illustrate what the hierarchy of the modern consumer really is.


"It comes as no surprise that broadband is on top of the list, with the rise of social media, the growing popularity of IPTV (internet TV) and VoIP (Voice over IP), internet has become the main medium of entertainment, interaction as well as communication."
