Mobile broadband could be a better option for those heading to university this autumn as opposed to paying out for a fixed-line alternative, according to one expert website.

Money High Street claims that mobile broadband can give students "freedom" to be able to access the internet anywhere using their laptop and a dongle.

Due to this, the site says that mobile broadband can be a "great option" when compared to fixed-line broadband options, as the cost as dropped over the last 12 months meaning it is now a "viable options for many".

The site recommends: "Consider a broadband pay monthly option as a start to see that you're happy with the service and make enough use of it - all the main providers offer this, including 3 or O2.

"If you are happy you can look to signing up for a longer term and get a better deal."

Money High Street has warned students to ensure they do now exceed data download limits as they could incur "expensive" penalty charges.

A recent YouGov survey found that T-Mobile offered the fastest mobile broadband service for upload and download speeds.
