Mobile broadband news

Mobile broadband is set to wholly transform the way that people access the internet, it has been suggested.

According to the Telegraph, the notion of having to stay in one place to get online has become a thing of the past as people come to expect more in a super-mobile age.

The publication notes that mobile broadband services are becoming cheaper all the time, allowing people to access high-speed internet while they are on the move.

As a result, provider Vodafone has hired an extra 450 staff to handle demand, while 3 has seen 20 per cent of its new customers purchasing mobile broadband products.

"This level of demand, coupled with the fact that, according to communications regulator Ofcom, more households now have mobiles than landlines, means that the landline is quickly becoming redundant," the publication suggests.

Elsewhere, a recent report from the GSM Association has found that global mobile broadband sales have increased tenfold in the past year.
