The leading cities of tomorrow will be those able to offer ubiquitous rich media experiences thanks to fixed and mobile broadband networks.

Delegates at Ericsson's Business Innovation forum predicted that next-generation broadband will make high-bandwidth services such as video conferencing available to those who want it any time of the day wherever they are, it has been reported.

According to Computer Weekly, the debate, which was held in Stockholm, Sweden, last month, outlined the future development of broadband networks over the next five years.

Jan Haglund, Ericsson's Deputy Head of Broadband Networks, suggested that mobile technologies such as Long Term Evolution (LTE) will be crucial to the mass consumerisation of wireless multimedia experiences.

The website quoted him as saying that LTE will eventually offer broadband speeds that are comparable with those of today's fixed broadband deals.

Meanwhile, ABI Research claimed this month that spending on infrastructure for the deployment of LTE base stations will exceed £2 billion globally in 2011.
