    IDC: Mobile broadband market floodgates opened


    Interesting comment:

    Nelson adds that the price of mobile broadband needs to come down and decent data caps offered.
    “For example, a 1GB monthly broadband plan is between $49.95 to $67.44 depending upon the contract term. In Australia you can get 1GB for $A19.95 ($NZ25) or 5GB for A$39.95 ($51).”

    I don't think there is even an option for a 5GB mobile BB plan in NZ with either provider!

    If you ever get past 2 GB on a Vodem you will see that there is a plan alright. You will also see how they can pay their executives so much.

    Definitely there is a Plan.

    A number of people text via phone while driving.

    A number of people phone while driving.

    A number of people drink alcohol or take drugs before driving.

    A number of people chat to other people in the vehicle while driving and that is inattention.

    The more people that take that sort of thing up will not live to get a pension in the event the age is not increased from 65 to whatever.

    Sweep, you do realise that Mobile Broadband does cover more than just phones, don't you?

    Many laptops are now provisioned with 3G ability as a standard feature - all that is required is a SIM card to be fitted to the laptop and an affordable plan from a provider of 3G services....

    Yep. It covers more than just phones.

    So not only are we going to get txting we may also get people driving with a laptop or netbook in the car and getting the internet while trying to have a shave at the same time or in the case of females they are doing makeup and checking the net at the same time.

    Or trying to find an unsecured network so they can take bandwith away.
