3Q08 fixed and mobile UMTS broadband penetration grow in the EU-25

Published: 2009-05-15

For this article the number of mobile broadband subscriptions refers to the number of mobile customers using 3G (UMTS: Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) datacards and USB (Universal Serial Bus) modems, which means typically mobile broadband Internet with laptops. Customers using simply a 3G mobile phone are not included since such phones are not used primarily for broadband Internet access and since they cannot be compared to a PC plus fixed broadband connection. Furthermore, customers using other mobile broadband technologies such as satellite, WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access), WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) and mobile Internet access via EDGE (Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution) and GPRS (General Packet Radio Services) through mobile phones are not included in the evaluation.
