Want to avoid download disappointment when you're out and about?!

Great news for those of use who live and work online (but don't have the luxury of being in the office from 9 to 5).

According to the BBC website "The UK has one wi-fi hotspot for every 11 people" which puts us in the UK towards the top of the pile when it comes to public wi-fi.

France has the most hotspots, followed by the US and UK. The estimated world average will be 20 hotspots per person by 2020 according to the BBC which puts us in the UK well ahead of the game.

However they all belong to different companies and need logins, passwords and sometimes payments to be able to access them.

Which is why 4G internet is so handy, you pay once and you can use 4G everywhere. However in some areas (such as London) 4G can be painfully slow.

Help is at hand... We'll for those of us lucky enough to live in selected cities.

According to the BBC web site "The whole of EE's 4G London network should be upgraded for 4G+”. Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester should be upgraded later in 2015.

4G+ is a much faster version of 4G which should help up download and streaming speeds in those areas.

Which added to the multiple wi-fi hotspots should make working on the move a much faster, more efficient and more enjoyable.

Keep up with what you need to succeed in the digital age...
