SME Communications research
Ofcom's primary duty is to further the interests of consumers and citizens in relation to communications matters; this includes business consumers, who are an important part of the UK communications market. This research explored the SME consumer experience in the communications market. A quantitative survey was conducted among SME (1-249 employees) decision makers using a mixed CATI (computer aided telephone interviewing) and online methodology. The topics covered included communications services used, attitudes, satisfaction, switching, net neutrality and contracts.
