UK broadband users increasingly want embedded broadband functionality while they are on the go, according to an iPass spokesperson.

ZDNet contributor David Meyer asserts that people are now more concerned with widespread coverage than they are with uniformly high speeds.

Commenting at the recent Mobile Broadband Congress, iPass spokesperson Gary Negus told Mr Meyer that the situation had changed a lot in the past 12 months.

Where he had previously advised against buying laptops with embedded wireless and mobile functionality because there was no open standard agreed upon, Mr Negus said that they now served the needs of those who needed always-on connectivity.

"The world has moved on. We're not anti-embedded. Our perspective is to stay agnostic. Users don't care about the bandwidth. They just want it to work. A lot of advances have been made in embedded chipsets," he commented.

iPass is an award-winning broadband and telecoms solutions company that serves the business community.
