In total, the most frequent downloads included apps and music, both of which 40% of respondents update weekly. E-books, newspapers and magazines were the least frequently downloaded with one quarter of respondents reporting doing so weekly.
“There’s a clear shift underway to a connected society demanding a fast and flawless experience around the clock and around the world.
