The next big thing in the world of communications is undoubtedly the predicted astronomical rise in the popularity of mobile broadband, which looks certain to virtually replace 'traditional' broadband services. Broadband comparison site Broadband Finder has found that mobile users to their website has increased threefold in August 2009 compared to August 2008. Industry forecasts by broadband providers have estimated this explosion to be in the region of a 40 fold increase over the next 8 years, and by 2017 there may be an amazing 418 million mobile broadband subscribers worldwide according to reports Coda Research Consultancy has released this month.
Broadband Finder are seeing a higher percentage of visitors to their site from mobile devices and even more people are finding the site looking to compare mobile broadband deals - the reasons are obvious.
What makes mobile broadband so attractive is the sheer convenience of being able to tap into the internet and access emails wherever you are - there's no need to worry about wires, phone lines or being in a Wi-Fi 'hotspot'. With mobile broadband, users can take the internet with them at all times...whether they are on a train, walking in the countryside, working or studying away from home, staying with friends or even playing a round of golf on holiday. All you need is a 'dongle' - the small device which plugs into your laptop, or alternatively many new portable devices on the market, such as netbooks, tablet laptops and notebooks, have a mobile broadband receiver already built in.
"The flexibility of a mobile broadband service offers enormous freedom to users," explains Thomas Newton of Broadband Finder, a specialist broadband comparison website, "which is what the modern user increasingly demands. We advise consumers to look around carefully to see what's on offer, as mobile services are becoming much more widely available right now and there are some great deals to be found."
In a similar pricing structure to current broadband, mobile phone users can get broadband on a Pay As You Go or on a monthly contract basis; and as the attractiveness of going fully mobile rapidly escalates amongst technology users, prices are decreasing and becoming more affordable. Once mobile broadband services were retailed by a select few ISPs, but now most major broadband providers are getting in on the act and offering a range of mobile broadband options.
