Furthermore, 14% of those surveyed said they have multiple unused routers in the home. When asked about why they have so many routers in their house, 59% said they didn't know how to recycle their old router, with a further 15% saying they have a second router sent to them by their internet service provider, alongside their older, working router. The study by Uswitch polled 2,000 UK adults in October 2021 to find out if there is a more preferable way for Brits to get internet into their homes. The research uncovered that three-quarters of British adults want a universal router that can be used by any internet service provider; in order to reduce the amount of e-waste. Six in 10 consumers believe bigger companies can do more to help save the planet, with Sky Broadband being voted as being the poorest when it comes to helping customers recycle their old routers. One of the reasons for so many redundant internet routers could be the desire to have the best connection possible. The advancements in technology allow for better internet routers to be made, meaning there are many older routers not in use. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/42percent-of-Brits-have-an-unused-internet-router-in-their-homes-leaving-around-22-million-redundant-ISP-routers-in-the-UK-survey-reveals-05100 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/42percent-of-Brits-have-an-unused-internet-router-in-their-homes-leaving-around-22-million-redundant-ISP-routers-in-the-UK-survey-reveals-05100 Government survey reveals awareness of 5G is strong Government survey reveals awareness of 5G is strong: A government survey looking at the participation of citizens in various aspects of life in England in 2022 has revealed that awareness of 5G is strong, with 71% revealing they know what it is. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Government-survey-reveals-awareness-of-5G-is-strong-05113 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Government-survey-reveals-awareness-of-5G-is-strong-05113 A third of businesses in rural areas rate their broadband quality as poor, reveals survey A third of businesses in rural areas rate their broadband quality as poor: A survey of businesses has revealed of those who operate out of a rural area, more than a third (34%) say their broadband quality is 'poor' or 'very poor'. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/A-third-of-businesses-in-rural-areas-rate-their-broadband-quality-as-poor-reveals-survey-05107 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/A-third-of-businesses-in-rural-areas-rate-their-broadband-quality-as-poor-reveals-survey-05107 Seven in 10 parents bought a brand new phone for their child in the last two years, finds survey Seven in 10 parents bought a brand-new phone for their child in the last two years: A survey of UK parents has found that 71% have bought a brand-new phone for their child in the last 2 years, with 44% also reporting that paying their child's mobile contract has become 'stressful' due to the current cost of living crisis. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Seven-in-10-parents-bought-a-brand-new-phone-for-their-child-in-the-last-two-years-finds-survey-05078 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Seven-in-10-parents-bought-a-brand-new-phone-for-their-child-in-the-last-two-years-finds-survey-05078 Approximately 45 million UK adults report receiving a suspicious message to their landline or mobile, reveals survey Approximately 45 million UK adults report receiving a suspicious message to their landline or mobile: A recent survey by Ofcom has revealed that 82% of British adults have received a suspicious message via their mobile phone or landline, equating to approximately 45 million in the UK.

In addition, 71% of those surveyed said they'd received a suspicious text, rising to three-quarters (75%) among 16'34-year-olds.
