Metric: European consumers want fixed-mobile convergence

According to a survey of 1,000 consumers in six European countries, over 50 percent of those polled said they would likely sign up for a fixed-mobile convergence service if it was available in the next 12 months. Consumers in Italy, Sweden, and Spain are the most likely to sign up. According to the survey, conducted by market research group BrainJuicer and commissioned by Motorola, of the respondents who would buy a fixed-mobile service, one-third would make most or all of their calls at home on their mobile phone. Motorola is currently running trials of dual-mode handsets with European carriers.
