Mobile broadband news

The number of people accessing pre-pay mobile broadband services across the world is set to rise in the near future, a new report has predicted.

Published by Tariff Consultancy, the Pre Pay Mobile Broadband Services: Pricing, Trends & Products study has suggested that a third of a billion people may use such technology by the end of 2013.

It also claimed that the Asia Pacific and Americas regions are set to see particularly large growth in terms of subscriber numbers.

Margrit Sessions, Managing Director of Tariff Consultancy, said: "Data allowances are increasing and are buoyed by the introduction of a large number of data bundles which are becoming more complex."

She added that some worldwide markets are seeing pre-pay mobile broadband technology positioned as a replacement for fixed line services.

Recent research published by O2 found that 44 per cent of small businesses believe their use of converged devices and mobile internet has helped their operations in recent months.
