The popularity of long-term evolution (LTE) mobile broadband technology is continuing to increase, according to a leading networking firm.
Thorsten Robrecht, Head of LTE Product Management at Nokia Siemens, said it is "unbelievable" how momentum is growing in the sector.
He told Reuters that demand among consumers is greater than ever, as more seek reliable and speedy web services on the move.
With LTE mobile broadband possessing the potential to provide 1Gb download speeds in future, the majority of operators are expected to embrace the technology.
Nokia Siemens says it is already in discussions with 15 top-tier broadband providers over the construction of commercial networks.
Back in December, broadband provider O2 ran a trial of LTE technology in Slough alongside Huawei, achieving a cell peak downlink rate of 150Mb during the pilot.
