Mobile broadband news

The success of the mobile broadband industry is posing problems to operators, according to research.

Figures from Berg Insight indicate that there are likely to be 49 million wireless broadband users in Europe within the next five years.

However, this is to see demand for mobile networks grow rapidly, the organisation suggests.

Tobias Ryberg, senior analyst at Berg Insight, says "Every mobile broadband service provider has a dilemma."

He adds "The very popularity of the service stretches the mobile network infrastructure to its utmost limit."

Berg Insight gives the example of Sweden, where consumers represent four-fifths of mobile broadband data transfers.

This is despite the fact that they form only around 40 per cent of the mobile broadband market in terms of subscription numbers.

Four main types of mobile broadband terminal have evolved to serve the full spectrum of the sector, the report notes, comprising gateways, embedded modules, USB modems and PC cards.
