Mobile broadband is becoming increasingly popular as computer users shift from PCs to laptops.

That is according to Ian Fogg, a principal analyst at Forrester Research, who has asserted that more people want to have flexibility with their machines.

Speaking to the Guardian, Mr Fogg explained that as such, laptops and notebooks are becoming the computers of choice and consequently there is now a tendency towards mobile broadband.

He also noted that consumers are increasingly relying on quick communication and this too is helping bolster mobile broadband's popularity.

For example, people seem keener than ever to stay in touch via email and instant messaging, while social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter are going from strength to strength.

"You need that internet connection for the computer to do what you expect it to do," Mr Fogg commented.

He went on to say that mobile broadband bundled with netbooks and notebook PCs is becoming more and more popular as people seek ways of communicating quickly and effectively.
