Mobile business broadband connections will reach 722 million within the next five years, new statistics have shown.

An investigation by Juniper Research has revealed that the number of firms across the globe utilising mobile internet access will increase by nearly 60 per cent by 2014, with approximately four-fifths of devices operating via 3.5 or 3.9G networks.

The study also found that the use of laptops and dongles in place of desktop terminals for broadband access will become increasingly prominent.

Andrew Kitson, author of the report, said: "Businesses are placing less emphasis on desktop machines and investing in combined laptop and phone packages for employees.

"As 3G networks proliferate, so it will become more cost-effective to replicate the desktop solution with a wireless device."

In April, BT Business unveiled its latest high-speed data network, which the group claims could potentially save companies up to 65 per cent on connection costs.
