The electronics manufacturer, LG, has chosen Ericsson to provide the latest mobile broadband technology based on HSPA, which is used the most within the mobile broadband sector.
It works in a similar manner as DSL, but offers mobility simply because there are an estimated 207 HSPA networks worldwide, helping over a billion customers to stay connected.
LG intend to install the mobile broadband equipment supplied by Ericsson into all of their notebooks and netbooks, as soon as it is available.
The market growth suggests that by 2011 there will be sales of around two hundred million laptops, and about half will have mobile broadband technology already installed.
All the user needs to do is insert a SIM card to access the internet.
