The number of people aged 65-74 who are using a tablet computer to go online has more than trebled within a year.
New figures from Ofcom show an increase from 5% of these older people using internet-connected tablets in 2012 to 17% of older people in 2013.
UK communications regulator Ofcom has published information about the volume of complaints it received between October and December 2013.
It’s the organisation’s twelfth quarterly report and reveals that the number of complaints had fallen quarter-on-quarter across landline telephone, broadband, ‘pay monthly’ mobile and pay TV services.
Figures from Ofcom’s latest European Broadband Scorecard show that the UK leads the EU’s five biggest economies when it comes to mobile broadband coverage, mobile broadband take-up, mobile broadband choice and general internet usage.
The comparison rated the UK against the other countries in the ‘EU5’: France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
A new research study conducted by Kantar Media on behalf of UK telecoms regulator Ofcom has shown that mobile application users believe apps are safer than accessing the internet via a browser.
These consumers also trusted well-known app brands and official app stores to provide a safe, secure and reliable user experience.

Patents were a very popular topic of conversation last week. Google sold its Motorola Mobility smartphone business to Lenovo but hung on to most of the patents. Does this mean the patents were the most valuable part of the business? Well, when you look at the difference between the original purchase price and the sale price, it seems a reasonable conclusion.
