NSN study reveals 40% increase in average monthly spend on mobile broadband

Nokia Siemens Networks released its Mobile Broadband Study 2010 which points to a 40 percent increase in average monthly spend on mobile broadband services compared with 2009. The study found that about 80 percent of users access the Internet using mobile broadband connections from home. About half use it on the go and one in five fixed broadband users are looking to move to mobile broadband. That study also found that subscribers are more likely to use smaller devices, such as mini laptops/netbooks (34 percent), smartphones and smart devices (25 percent), to access mobile broadband, compared with PCs (27 percent) and standard laptops.
