The advent of 4G connectivity, with EE launching their service in November 2012, has seen mobile data speeds leap into the realms of 20Mb (faster than many people get on their desktops) with higher speeds being introduced all the time.
Both Vodafone and O2 launched their 4G services in August 2013 so, as the networks roll out the coverage, these increases in speed are going to become available to most mobile users – as long as they have a device that supports 4G.
This increase in speed is great news, as it means that real time mobile access to Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems and Cloud Computing Servers such as Microsoft 365, will become commonplace. The data will be processed at speeds approaching those experienced by desk bound users today.
In the short term It’s likely that the network’s capabilities will be ahead of the user’s needs, but as new solutions become available this will change and the pace and importance of mobile working will increase.
To make sure you keep ahead of the crowd talk to us about mobile working.
