Mobile broadband gaining ground on ADSL and cable

Mobile broadband gaining ground on ADSL and cable



February 29, 2016

A report in PC Pro suggests that mobile broadband technology, such as 3G data cards, could overtake traditional fixed-line connections, such as ADSL and cable, within the next two years.

Comparison site, Top 10 Broadband, has noted a 50 per cent increase, month on month, in sales of mobile broadband, over a six month period.

Mobile broadband has the advantage of flexibility, especially for people who travel with a laptop. It provides reliable broadband connectivity, compared with Wi-Fi which relies on being in range of a hotspot.

There is a downside to the technology though – the cheapest mobile broadband contracts limit monthly downloads to 1 GB, while £25 a month packages sets the limit at 7 GB, significantly lower than limits with fixed line connections.
