More than Half of UK Mobile Broadband Users Want Faster Internet Speeds or LTE

Posted: 05th Nov, 2010 By: MarkJ
nokia siemens networksA new Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) study into Mobile Broadband (3G) users and non-users in France, Germany, Spain and the UK has revealed that 58% are interested in faster services and 30% would even be willing to pay a premium for it. The majority of users also said they would be interested in the next generation of mobile internet technology, known as LTE or Long Term Evolution.

Almost a third of users said they intend to spend more time accessing the Internet via Mobile Broadband (31%), while a quarter of non-mobile broadband users expressed interest in taking it up. The average monthly spend on mobile broadband compared with 2009 has also risen by 40%, which is partly down to higher penetration, general usage increases and the availability of more bundles with laptops.

Beppe Donagemma, Head of West & South Europe, Nokia Siemens Networks, said:

"The study highlights that demand for mobile broadband is rapidly increasing due to its potential to deliver the connected experience people want, wherever they are.

However, the quality of experience needs to improve to increase adoption. Operators need to prepare their networks to handle future volume and data traffic types to sustain mobile broadband growth."

The study also found that about 80% of the users accessed the Internet with a mobile broadband connection from home. According to the study, approximately half of subscribers use Mobile Broadband on the go, and one in five fixed broadband users is looking to move to Mobile Broadband.

Subscribers are more likely to use smaller devices, such as mini-laptops/netbooks (34%), Smartphone's and smart devices (25%) to access Mobile Broadband, compared to PCs (27%) and standard laptops.
