Mobile broadband news

While mobile broadband has its advantages for users on the move and those without fixed-line access, students are not best suited to the service.

This is according to Amy Davies of independent financial advisor Motley Fool - she says that unless a student is living on their own, mobile broadband is not needed on the whole.

Ms Davies pointed out that many university campuses provide free internet access, while students living in a house together are able to share a connection, thereby cutting costs.

She explains: "Unlike standard broadband, which can be shared between all the members of your household using a wireless router, you would need a USB dongle each if you wanted to use the internet at the same time."

Orange recently launched a mobile broadband offer aimed at students, with £10 a month deals available on 18 to 24-month contracts.
