The next phase in tech evolution might come a little sooner than we thought. According to a Harris Interactive poll that was released in December, consumers say they are ready for 4G, the elusive network of networks that will integrate consumer electronics, communication technology and a wireless pipeline at an optimum bit rate.
According to the survey, 49% of adults find the idea of 4G appealing, and roughly 34% say they would likely subscribe to such a service. The early adoption rate is considered high, too – about 7% of those polled say they would be interested in subscribing ‘at launch.’
The survey also indicates that the service market for 4G is wide open, with consumers looking to internet providers first and companies like Google and Microsoft close behind. However, an overwhelming majority (77%) of respondents say they would be averse to signing a binding long-term contract for service. GR
