Wi-Fi overtaken by mobile broadband


by David Allen

In just about a year, mobile broadband has grown so fast that it has now overtaken Wi-Fi as the preferred way for UK computer users to access the internet while away from home or the office.

In a recent survey by Point Topic it was found that forty seven per cent of internet users will access the internet by mobile broadband when away from their fixed line broadband, while forty two per cent still prefer to use a Wi-Fi hotspot to connect to the internet.

This is good news for the mobile broadband providers, but the survey did find out one other detail which could affect the continued growth of mobile broadband, that is only ten per cent of mobile broadband users are planning to switch providers within the next six months.

This is probably due to the long term contracts that they are already signed up for.
