Brits choose laptops, not love

Wellies are romantic, who knew?

BT MOBILE BROADBAND has revealed that nearly two thirds of us would prefer to spend time online this half term break, rather than being romantic.

A survey of 500 people conducted by BT with VisitBritain has been looking into time spent online while on downtime. It found that in this week's half term, which is a romantic time to be 'between the sheets' apparently, 37 per cent of people will prefer to take their laptop on a holiday rather than their Wellington boots.

We're not sure about the Wellington boots for romantic excursions, but we suppose it takes all sorts. Also it seems an odd python-esque choice between wellies or laptop, and let's not even think about anything romantic involving either.

Still it's not all kinky wellies at half term break. Over two-thirds of 18 to 25 year olds will mostly be spending their time updating their facebook page, tweeting or uploading photographs. Just like usual then.

Most of the over-50 crowd will be online too, with 89 per cent of them using the Internet while on holiday to research historical places of interest.

Still, if you want to ruin your holiday, ignore your loved ones and get your feet all soggy with no wellies, BT recommends that you use their dongle and the BT FON network. µ
