Bharatbook added a new report on "Pre Pay Mobile Broadband Services - Trends and Products from around the world" which gives the growth in Pre Pay Mobile Broadband services.

Online PR News – 15-September-2010 – – Pre Pay Mobile Broadband services are now becoming a key component of a mobile operator's product portfolio in most countries around the world. The adoption of HSDPA (High Speed Data Packet Access) networks (which allow a theoretical upload access speed of up to 7.2 Mbps) by an increasing number of mobile operators has meant the offer of higher speed access bundles and higher data Monthly User Allowances (MUAs) for subscribers.

Initially, Mobile Broadband services (which are defined for the purposes of this report as being a USB flash modem which supports a theoretical upload access speed of at least 384Kbps) are gaining in popularity for Pay Monthly customers supported by higher speed mobile networks and flat rate pricing for contract users.

But in many countries the majority of mobile voice subscribers are Pre Pay users, not Pay Monthly users. In Italy, for example, the application of tax to Pay Monthly contracts means that some 80 per cent of mobile users use a Pre Pay service, which is the norm for business users.

Pre Pay Mobile Broadband services are very much a new phenomena. The first services were introduced in 2008, but have been quickly adopted by all operators when introduced. The research has identified mobile broadband pre pay services in 74 countries.
