[EE]: LTE Replaces Wi-Fi and Broadband, Increases Uploads

A report by UK's MNO EE, provides some interesting statistics on the changes caused by LTE penetration:

  • "Because 4G is proving to offer consistency as well as fast speeds, customers are increasingly using it to replace public Wi-Fi and home broadband. As the nationwide rollout of 4G has moved into less urban areas that have less public Wi-Fi, and relatively poor home broadband speeds, this trend has accelerated

  • 4G Sees Uploading overtaking downloading for the first time - With 4G, sharing information becomes easier than on less consistent or slower networks .. For example, on the day of Margaret Thatcher’s funeral we saw uploading exceed downloading in the area of St Paul’s Cathedral. This was likely those viewing the funeral procession taking pictures and video and uploading them to social media sites"
