Mobile broadband news

A new Ofcom report offering insight into the UK mobile broadband market will not be released until 2013, it has been revealed.

Speaking to, a spokesperson for the communications regulator confirmed that an updated report on dongle performance is in the pipeline.

"But it is likely that this will only be issued at the beginning of next year at the earliest," they stated.

Ofcom's last report into the state of the mobile broadband sector was published in May 2011, when the regulator revealed that average UK download speeds were just 1.5Mb.

The report said that in areas of 'good coverage', this average speed increased to 2.1Mb.

However, the majority of mobile broadband providers have since upgraded to HSPA+ technology, meaning many dongle users have received a speed boost.
