The need for supporting fixed line infrastructure

Our latest whitepaper, in partnership with Megabuyte, is out and available to download. It looks at the clear demand for mobile internet access and what that means for the underlying access and aggregation network infrastructure.

Mobile data usage growth

Mobile data usage across the UK has grown by 30% in the last year, with a similar projected growth rate for the coming 3-4 years. This highlights a clear demand for mobile internet access.

Increase in voice calls

Voice calls from UK mobiles are up 8% to an annualised 194 billion minutes due to pandemic impact and remote working.

The need for fixed line infrastructure

The growth of mobile data usage in the UK (nearly 30% in the past year) highlights some clear demands. In particular for mobile internet access, video streaming, gaming, and remote working from the four main mobile network operators (EE, Vodafone, Virgin Media O2, and Three). This is only likely to continue growing with 4G upgrades and 5G rollouts supporting faster and lower latency services.

Unsurprisingly, mobile networks need fixed line infrastructure more than ever before. Download your free copy of the whitepaper to read more.
