Report: Enterprise use of tablets, laptops to triple mobile broadband connections

Over the next five years the number of businesses using "large-screen" portable devices--tablets or laptops--will lead to the number of mobile broadband connections tripling, according to the market research firm Ovum. The firm claims that, worldwide, the number of large-screen mobile broadband connections within enterprises will rise to 74 million by 2015--up from 25.8 million in 2010--a CAGR rate of 24 per cent. Commenting on the new study, Ovum principal analyst, Pauline Trotter, said that an increasingly mobile workforce and fast growing need to access data wherever they are was the drive force behind this predicted growth.
