Is mobile broadband hindering boom in ‘m-commerce’

eCommerceIt is being predicted by companies like eBay that ‘m commerce’ is going to boom over the next few years as more of us use smart phones to access the internet and purchase goods and services.

As we use mobiles to gain access to the internet and purchase goods  could lead the UK economy to grow by £4.5bn within four years, and by another £13bn by 2021 according to eBay.

This potential growth will be hindered by lack of access to mobile broadband, and the costs of data downloads. We should push for great coverage and  have ambitious goals to make sure the higher reliability and quality of mobile broadband. This will only happen if he the users create a demand and show we are prepared to access the internet with our mobiles.
