The convenience of mobile broadband services could go a long way to assisting the construction of a UK-wide next-generation network, according to one expert.

Tom Newton of Broadband Finder has highlighted the benefits of mobile broadband to those charged with the installation of a fibre-optic network.

As it is unlikely that super-fast broadband could be connected to all addresses via fibre-to-the-home connections, Mr Newton picked out the advantages of mobile broadband, which can deliver quicker speeds without the need for extensive installation work.

He explained: "Limited access makes digging up a road to install fibre optic connections an impossibility in certain locations.

"Mobile broadband connections circumvent this problem by not requiring a physical connection to the premises to deliver broadband services."

A recent report by Analysys Mason predicted that there will be 148 million mobile broadband connections in Europe by the year 2014.
