Mobile broadband news

Following a recent assertion that Wi-Fi could become redundant in the near future, it is suggested that mobile broadband could take over.

Commenting on recent claims made by Ericsson's chief marketing officer Johan Bergendahl suggesting that Wi-Fi could become as irrelevant as phone boxes, the Register notes it reflects the potential dominance of mobile broadband technology.

The resource notes that while similar predictions have been made in the past, there was no realistic alternative to Wi-Fi services.

Now, however, mobile broadband technology is capable of delivering reliable high-speed broadband services to a far greater number of people at a reasonable price, the publication notes.

The next step, the article argues, is to bring subscription costs down further and increase availability to further encourage adoption of mobile broadband services.

Mobile broadband services are becoming increasingly popular throughout the UK and abroad, with a recent report by ComReg suggesting that such services account for 14 per cent of all broadband subscriptions in Ireland.
