UK users are keen on mobile banking, according to a survey — 51% expressed interest in using a mobile banking service. The survey was conducted by Forrester Custom Research for mobile banking firm Meridea, and was of 2,127 “UK consumers that use the Internet frequently”.
There is some question to how broadly it can be applied to the general population, considering that “nearly one third of those surveyed already regularly browse the internet from their mobile phone and 60% of all those surveyed could carry out mobile banking on their existing mobile handsets, if it was available to them”.
Nevertheless, those who are interested in mobile banking are most interested in being able to check account balances, being warned when their account goes overdrawn, freezing a card and making payments or transfers.
