Conductivity of an electrolyte

I know that electric conductivity of metallic conductors increases with decrease in its absolute temperature(kelvin) . But is it the same for electrolytes such as water. Is cold water a better or worse conductor of electricity than warm water at same pressure and concentration.

The electric conductivity of liquid electrolytes increases with temperature as the ion mobilities generally increase with increasing temperature. As a rough estimate, the ion mobilities are inversely proportional to the viscosity of the liquid.
