Tablet and laptop owners are more likely to regularly use 3G mobile broadband than owners of dongles according to the latest results from YouGov’s Mobile Broadband Experience.

When looking at the average cost of a tariff, netbook, integrated laptops with mobile broadband and tetherer owners had an average monthly tariff value of £15.64 – a lot more than dongle, modem stick, datacard owners who spent an average monthly value of just £12.88.
