Ofcom to investigate UK mobile broadband - SamKnows tests published every 6 months

Missed this mid-July - very good news that there will be independent evidence on any progress towards higher performance. Ofcom to investigate UK mobile broadband performance - Techworld.com: "Communications regulator Ofcom has awarded a contract worth £238,100 to broadband performance company SamKnows Ltd, to carry out research on mobile broadband performance in the UK. The aim of the research, which will be conducted between Autumn 2012 and Spring 2015, is to obtain a greater understanding of the performance of mobile broadband services delivered to users of tablets and smartphones on the UK’s four mobile networks. It will examine how this varies by operator, location and time of day, in order to help consumers make more informed choices when selecting a broadband service." 'via Blog this'

The mobile Internet has come a long way. The mobile Internet is already available in many places, including cars, trains, and airplanes, but cost, speed, and availability are still barriers to wider adoption. Mobile broadband is reshaping society, communications, and the global economy.
