Mobile broadband news

The use of mobile broadband in the UK is set to increase, according to the regulatory body Ofcom.

A projected sales figure of 300,000 dongles per month is expected by December of this year, adding to the two million people already using mobile broadband on British shores.

Furthermore, the growth of mobile broadband is thought to be the main driving force behind the ongoing increase of broadband penetration nationwide, with six in ten Brits now enjoying access.

Ofcom's Peter Phillips said: "Our devotion to watching, listening and staying in touch wherever and whenever we want shows no sign of diminishing and, with healthy competition, overall prices offer increasing value for money."

Figures show that the number of dongles sold per month in Britain has rocketed from 69,000 to 133,000 over the course of 2008.
