New ISPreview Article - Mobile Broadband Interview

Posted: 08th Oct, 2007 By: MarkJ
ISPreview UK has just uploaded the first part of an interview with two of the country's leading mobile phone operators, T-Mobile and Orange. The interview is designed to investigate the future feasibility of 'Mobile Broadband' (3/3.5/4G) as a viable replacement for fixed-line broadband (ADSL etc.).

In the first part we get to chat with T-Mobile's manager for Mobile Broadband, Ralf Pearson (sample quote below):

2. Modern HSDPA/HSUPA 3G mobile broadband technologies have the potential to deliver speeds up to around 14Mbps downstream, will we ever see mobile operators able to offer this (what aspects hold such advances back)?

It is very conceivable that we will see these types of speeds in the years ahead. At T-Mobile we are continually looking evolve our Mobile Broadband service both in terms of speed and coverage.

3. Some operators have found it necessary to restrict services such as VoIP and P2P, limiting the technologies attractiveness to modern surfers. Will we see more flexibility in the future or is this something mobile broadband users must learn to accept as par for the course?

T-Mobile aims to provide the best service to the greatest number of people. To do this it is important that we focus our capacity on the requirements of the greatest number of our customers. Although services like P2P, etc are growing they represent a very small number of our current customers.

The second part, which will cover responses from one of Orange's technical bods, should follow within a week or two. Hopefully they will be able to offer more details in the areas T-Mobile have not.
