In one of the previous issues, when we discussed how to aviod the most common mistakes when choosing and implementing the business solution, you could read the following: “Investments in business IT will not make you rich, but non-investing will surely make you poor fast”.

Mobile broadband gateway

It is probably needless to talk about the significance of broadband Internet access – it is something that, in the modern world, implies as an integral part of not just modern business, but also everyday life. That is exactly why development of good communication infrastructure and information society is defined as a starter of general progress. Unfortunately, we are the witnesses that, when it comes to communication infrastructure, we still “trot” behind developed countries. The bigger broadband penetration on our market started together with cable Internet and ADSL appearance and though we have moved forward a lot since then, there are very often lack technical possibilities for broadband access in some important locations and, which is even worse, they will keep lacking in the near future. What should be done?
