3G mobile broadband is set to become an even more important technology in the future, it has been claimed.
According to Stephane Teral, principal analyst for mobile and fixed-mobile convergence infrastructure at Infonetics Research, demand for such services is set to increase, but 3G capacity has the ability to keep pace.
He noted that with high-speed packet access today, there is already plenty of broadband capacity available for dongle users.
"With long-term evolution technology looming, this will go up again," Mr Teral claimed.
"The way things are going, there is good reason to believe that we want to migrate as many existing 2G and 2.5G subscribers to 3G."
Mr Teral was commenting after mobile broadband providers T-Mobile and 3 announced plans to complete their joint network infrastructure upgrade by the end of 2010.
