More than nine in ten (94 percent) of Brits plan to surf the web while on holiday, says Broadband Expert.

Research by the broadband comparison site revealed 47 percent of web addicts will use their mobile phone to access the net while abroad.

Meanwhile, 22 percent said they'd visit an internet café to get their web fix and 17 percent planned to use a mobile broadband dongle.

The remaining eight percent claimed they'd use a Wi-Fi connection in their hotel.

"The growth in popularity of smartphones has made it much easier and more convenient for more consumers to get online while abroad," said Rob Webber, commercial director at Broadband Expert.

"This shows that Brits can't bear to be away from sites like Facebook, Twitter, news sites and email; which have become part of the daily routine for so many of us. It seems us Brits are keen to stay connected to the internet even while taking a well deserved break."
