Mobile broadband news

Mobile operators could struggle to make an adequate return on mobile broadband services in the future, such are the high running costs of the service, according to one expert.

Principal consultant of Omnitele, Pal Zarandy, has highlighted the issue of profitability for mobile operators with interests in the 3G broadband market,

Specifically, Mr Zarandy says that the investment needed to support large amounts of user data could come to €1,000 per subscriber, or £876.

"Mobile broadband services are today the mainstay of many leading mobile operators, as voice revenues continue to be under pressure," he warned.

"If mobile broadband is to become the new cash cow of MNOs, much stronger and fiercer CAPEX cost analysis and controls need to be installed."

Omnitele boats over two decades of experience in providing consultation services to the wireless industry.
