Mobile broadband has "the upper hand" in its battle with Wi-Fi over broadband on the move, one expert has said.
Rob Ablewhite, director of Broadband Expert, believes that 3G and 4G technology is set to become more common as a way of enjoying broadband.
Mr Wood was confident that mobile broadband could stave off the challenges of both fixed-line services and Wi-Fi in the future.
ZDNet reported him saying: "Any other technology is going to struggle against mobile broadband.
"It has the upper hand now, and a year down the line, I can't imagine anyone using anything else."
Recent figures from market analyst GfK show that 100,000 USB modem sticks needed for mobile broadband are being sold each month in the UK, with provider 3 alone selling over half a million of the dongles.
