Mobile broadband news

Mobile broadband use in the UK is set to grow in the next five years, taking a chunk out of fixed-line services' market share, new research predicts.

A report from market analysts Analysis Mason foresees that half the broadband connections in Europe will be mobile-based by the year 2013.

Furthermore, it is thought that one quarter of household connections will be mobile broadband in five years time.

Looking ahead at the future of fixed-line, the report's main author, Rupert Wood, commented: "Fixed operators are currently underestimating the scale of the threat of mobile broadband."

He added: "Fixed and mobile operators will need to learn to co-habit as well as to compete."

According to Analysis Mason, half of fixed-line broadband users have a usage profile equal to or lower than the average mobile broadband user.
