The rollout of new 4G data networks across the UK is vital for both businesses and consumers, an industry expert has claimed.
Last month mobile networks Vodafone and O2 announced they would become the latest networks to offer 'super-fast' data with the rollout of their first 4G data services - in three UK cities.
Vodafone's 4G network will initially be limited to parts of London while O2 will launch in London, Leeds and Bradford before further expansion.
The expansion of the UK's 4G capacity, said Nick Appleby, director of Westlake Communications, parent company of the 3G Router Store, will have a double benefit of offering a faster service capable of delivering data-heavy content and making 3G more cost effective.
"Mobile data networks offer great advantages," said Appleby.
"Business and consumers don't need a landline so they won't incur the set up costs and monthly charges, there is often no lengthy installation, you can use it on the go, anywhere with a data signal, and service loads of devices from a single router.
"The fact that more networks are rolling out 4G will mean improved coverage and a better pricing so that businesses and consumers can take advantage of all the great things mobile data networks can offer."
The rollout of new 4G networks, Appleby added, meant more people would now fit 4G routers in their homes and businesses to enable them to benefit from the highest download speeds available for multiple users.
"Higher broadband speeds mean people living outside the major cities will soon feel the same benefit of high-speed data services, liberating their internet use," Appleby said.
Three will be the last major mobile network to rollout 4G services in the UK when it launches in London, Birmingham and Manchester in December.
Super-fast mobile data networks became a reality in the UK in October 2012 when EE (formerly Orange and T-Mobile) was launched as the UK's first provider of a 4G mobile network.
EE now offers its 4G network in 105 towns and cities and the addition of other super-fast networks will increase coverage across the UK.
"These latest launches and the continued spread of EE's coverage means the UK is closing the super-fast internet gap," said Appleby.
"The UK lagged behind countries, like the US, Japan and Australia, when it can to quick mobile internet access, but that is changing quickly, brining benefits to consumer and businesses."
