Mobile broadband news

Broadband accounts for the overwhelming majority of internet connections in the UK, according to the latest figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

Newly-released data shows that 19 out of every 20 web connections in Britain are via broadband.

In June 2008, broadband was being used for 93.2 per cent of connections to the internet, rising from 91.6 per cent in March earlier this year.

As the ONS released its quarterly Index of Internet Connectivity report, it has also been noted that UK customers wish to be connected on the move, as well as at home.

Research from T-Mobile found that 44 per cent of those quizzed want to be able to take the internet everywhere they go.

"More and more people have developed a need for being 'always connected' to online services which are important to them, whether it is on a laptop or on their phones," commented T-Mobile's head of internet and entertainment, Richard Warmsley.
