Research and Markets, the world’s largest market research resource, announced that it has added research about wireless internet service providers in New Zealand to the information currently offered on its site. The information about New Zealand wireless reveals that the number of mobile broadband subscribers between 2009 and 2011 increased to nearly one hundred percent. While this has outshone many of the wireless broadband developments taking place in that country, major regional and city centers continue to enjoy coverage from a number of its main providers. In addition, the cost of wireless broadband is being reduced due to the competition from mobile broadband, causing the widespread availability of regional coverage to occur. According to the report, the wireless broadband process has become simpler, and both businesses and consumers are choosing their providers based on speed, cost and coverage.

In a report released by the United Nations, it seems that subscriptions to mobile broadband are on the rise all over the world. And while only one of every twenty people in poor countries currently have a cell phone plan, it’s customers in these countries who are subscribing at a lightning-fast rate of 160% per year. Just two years ago, 531 million people were subscribed to some kind of mobile broadband service. That number is now at almost 900 million. This rise in global mobile subscriptions is mainly due to the fact that having a broadband connection in the home has become more expensive, and doesn’t include the email, internet and mobility offered by cell phone plans. In addition to these numbers, the report also suggests that dial-up internet may disappear in the coming years, and warns that user statistics for popular social networking sites are not necessarily accurate indicators of actual internet use.
