Mobile broadband adoption to grow relentlessly across Europe

In spite of the economic slowdown, mobile broadband adoption will continue to grow relentlessly across Europe, boosted by the introduction of 3G+ and 4G, expanding device selection and usability, and the gains mobile networks are making in affordability and pricing, according to a new report from Pyramid Research. Bakhyt Weeks, an analyst with the firm, said that thanks to the right conditions existing in Europe - including the wide availability and high quality of mobile broadband, attractive pricing, and user-friendly devices - the number of European mobile broadband users will reach 116.6 million in 2014, up from 24.3 million in 2008. "It has been a while since we saw an opportunity this big in European mobile communications," she said. Article
