Wireless broadband internet is a cheaper alternative for business during the credit crunch, an industry expert has claimed.
Angelo Lamme, wireless director at Motorola Enterprise Mobility Business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, also noted it that wireless internet is more flexible.
Research published by the firm earlier this week found that more than half of businesses wanted to adopt wireless to improve mobility.
However, Mr Lamme explains that cost could also be a major factor during the economic downturn.
He said: "You can put in a wireless network for about one fifth to one tenth of the cost of putting in wired workplaces.
Mr Lamme added that it "is a very interesting alternative" at this "economically difficult time".
The Motorola research also found that three quarters of businesses (76 per cent) already have wireless in operation in some form.
More than two thirds (69 per cent) expect to have completely wireless networks by 2010.
