A growing number of mobile users are demanding "broadband on the go", according to telecommunications network provider Motorola.
The firm notes that the gap between mobile broadband and conventional fixed-line services is beginning to narrow as consumers increase their usage of the internet on portable devices.
Such a trend is accompanied by a desire for "my time" rather than primetime, Motorola adds, as consumers look for greater levels of on-demand content rather than having it delivered at a set moment.
Dan Moloney, president of home and networks mobility at Motorola, says: "Changes in how much, how often and where content is delivered and consumed are fundamentally driving the convergence of wired and wireless broadband devices and networks."
The company notes that set-top boxes with record and playback functionality are helping to make video content delivered over networks a more attractive proposition for customers.
Motorola recently announced its Moto Z10 handset with Veveo vtap, a service by which videos may be downloaded "from any source on the internet".
