Fixed-line internet services could become obsolete as a result of competition from mobile broadband products, it has been suggested.

According to the Times, mobile broadband services - starting from £10 per month - are proving attractive to customers looking to do away with their existing fixed-line internet and telephone packages.

The publication notes: "A dongle gives users high-speed internet access at home as well as on the move and means that they no longer need to pay for a broadband service via their home phone line."

As well as being a cost-effective alternative for those with existing fixed-line products, mobile broadband is also identified as an effective way to avoid the costly installation fees often imposed by home-based internet providers.

The Times continues by suggesting that there are already a number of choices for those looking to take up mobile broadband services, with T-Mobile, Vodafone and 3 all offering competitively priced products.

Elsewhere, online resource Ovum noted recently that 3 and T-Mobile's recent network sharing deal will further improve the provision of mobile broadband services in the future.
