Frequency of using the mobile signal on tablet PC to go online in the UK in 2018

This statistic shows the frequency of going online via tablet PC in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2018. As of February 2018, 52 percent of respondents used the mobile signal on their tablet computer to go online every day.
Of course there are many different decision factors that go into purchasing a new tablet PC, however, mobile data services is not one of them. Considering tablets have had a significant increase in online use this seems somewhat counterintuitive.

How often do you personally use the mobile signal on your tablet computer to go online - rather than using a Wi-Fi connection?
