More than half of the UK's broadband users have a wireless network installed at home, according to new research.
The latest findings from Linksys' ongoing Connect Life Consumer Trends Survey show that Britons are making the most of their broadband services by using wireless networks.
Some 59 per cent of broadband users have a wireless network at home, with 87 per cent of these internet users connected laptops and PCs to their networks.
A further 28 per cent of wireless broadband users have connected their printers, while 20 per cent have connected a games console and six per cent have attached a digital music device.
Chris Dobrec, director of strategy and business development for the wireless hardware provider suggested that wireless networking "is now a mass market technology and not only for the tech savvy consumer".
"The consumer is by no means a computer network administrator he or she is purely interested in the application of the network for tasks like accessing the internet wirelessly or printing wirelessly," he explained.
