Code of Practice should extend to mobile broadband


by David Allen

The communications regulator Ofcom’s decision to bring out a voluntary code of practice for broadband providers has been met with a mixed reception which is only to be expected.

However there are calls for these rules to be extended to cover mobile broadband too.

There have been many problems and complaints when it has come to the connection speeds advertised by mobile broadband providers.

This was highlighted when 3 Mobile complained about the advertising strategy of their rival, Vodafone, who were claiming speeds of 7.2 Mbps.

It is believed that Ofcom are considering making this code of practice applicable to mobile broadband too, but not for several months.

But even then there are calls to make these rules compulsory for the providers as this would give the rules some substance.
