Broadband on the go is coming on in leaps and bounds, with next-generation technology able to take speeds up to 100Mb.

This is the conclusion drawn by Juniper Research, which has just released a report on Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, covered by Computer Weekly.

After a rollout which is expected next year, the study's authors predict that LTE will generate in the region of $70 billion (£49.9 billion) over a five-year period.

"LTE will offer broadband speeds of up to 100 Mb or more: this is at least five times faster than the best mobile broadband now and around 20 times faster than most people experience via fixed DSL," Juniper researcher Howard Wilcox told the IT news provider.

He said: "The challenge for mobile operators is how to make profits yet keep prices attractive enough for subscribers to sign up."

The new publication, entitled LTE Mobile Broadband Strategies, also looks at the regions in which the technology will prosper the most.
