Carphone Warehouse hints at impact of Mobile Broadband

Carphone Warehouse has revealed a slow growth in the broadband market after they halved its target for new broadband customers this year.

The group forecast in April that it would get 400,000 new customers by next March. However, they have cut this number to between 200,000 and 250,000. They have said the consumer slowdown and less people moving house are to blame.

What was interesting though was that CEO Charles Dunstone highlighted the popularity of mobile broadband 'dongles', as another factor which is putting pressure customer additions.

This is the first indication that mobile broadband is having a real impact on 'traditional' fixed-line broadband sales. Could this be a peek into the future?
