Here are some highlights of the (apparently US-based) survey results:
- 34% of iPhone owners mistakenly think they already have 4G.
- 22% of people don't think 4G performance is worth the cost.
- 30% of people think the 4G data plan costs too much.
- 40% of people say they'll buy the next iPhone, even if it doesn't have 4G
You can count me with the 40% of surveyed iPhone users who would probably buy the next iPhone whether it supported 4G or not. I have both an iPhone and an Android, but inertia and a general sense of satisfaction keep me on the iPhone platform. I would not switch to Android full-time just because I could get a 4G phone. I wouldn't mind 4G, but I would probably bristle at having to pay any additional monthly fee for the data service. For my day to day use, I find that 3G speeds are perfectly adequate, and ultimately the latency of mobile broadband networks and the processing power of mobile devices are much more important limiters on overall mobile user experience than raw bandwidth is. Do you agree?
