to a study done by Ofcom The study done last year between September and December was done by Ofcom in partnership with Epitiro the broadband monitoring specialists found that the average mobile broadband speed was 1 5Mb with an average web page taking 8 5 seconds to download this was done using dongles and datacards and did not include smartphones In areas where there was very good 3G coverage the average mobile broadband speeds were 2 1Mb which during peak evening hours fell to 1 7Mb with basic web pages taking around 2 2 seconds to download on average Between the 5 mobile broadband providers in the UK it was O2 mobile broadband that on average performed the fastest and had a lower latency that 3 Orange and Vodafone O2 averaged around 2 5 3Mb speeds while at the other end of the scale Orange were averaging around 1 1 4Mb speeds Other interesting parts that the study found was that 17 of UK households use mobile broadband services to access online services with 7 using it as their only means of internet access a 4 rise in a year from the 3 the previous year Over 4 2 million broadband speed test s were run for the study with 97 static test probes across the UK

Author Mark 10 38 am Comments 0 May 20 2011 Ofcom asked to increase mobile internet coverage of 4G network MPs from different parties yesterday called on Ofcom to make the requirement of the 800MHz mobile broadband spectrum to be available to 98 of the UK up from the 95 figure that is currently being attached to it ahead of it being auctioned off next year in a plea to help a further 2 million rural people who live out of range of high speed broadband connections The current target of 95 coverage that is being attached to it would leave around 6 million people without the 4G mobile broadband access which works well over long distances and works well for those living in rural and more remote areas to get a reliable internet connection MPs claim that Ofcom is putting money before coverage by saying that Ofcom are worried about losing money from the auction as the mobile broadband providers may not pay as much for the 800MHz spectrum if they are required to extend the coverage from 95 to 98 of the country Ofcom will finish their consultation stage of the auction at the end of this month and once this is done the terms that will be attached to the new 800MHz spectrum will be decided Ofcom are unlikely at this late stage to increase to required coverage from 95 of the population The estimate cost to increase from 95 coverage to 98 coverage is around 215 million with this figure potentially lowering the final sale price of the spectrum In future however if the government need to go to the winners of the auction and request that coverage is extended then they will be having to pay for this as apposed to it being done by the companies own costs now Filed under News Tags 800MHz spectrum Mobile Broadband Mobile broadband spectrum Ofcom Ofcom asked to increase mobile
