Are Mobile Internet Service Providers In My Area Gearing Up For Change?

May 8th, 2013

If you live in North America, you may not see many changes in the mobile internet service providers in my area. But if you live in the United Kingdom, there are changes afoot. And time will tell whether they will affect mobile companies in the United States or Canada. Network capacity will be boosted in the U.K. by using microcells.

Operators in that country will be affixing a larger number of antennas to walls, which will help to increase mobile network rollouts to answer an ever-increasing demand. Experts in that country estimate that mobile usage will increase by eighty times in just the next seventeen years. But adding capacity has been a challenge due to government regulations about deployment rates. However, the country’s government has recently proposed a series of measures which may allow for quicker network expansion.
