Archived report. This report was archived in 2006 and has not been updated. 2G based services will be predominantly voice driven, with a few enhanced services (SMS), and is unlikely to be widely accepted for data applications. 3G is seen as the answer to this, and some companies have paid enormous sums of money to obtain spectrum to allow them to capture this market. Other possible uses are in WLL developments and domestic uses. Having paid such high prices for 3G spectrum, companies are now looking for business opportunities to recoup at least some of the money that they have invested. This report discusses the evolution of 3G; analyses the problems of implementation; describes the difference between 3G and the existing 2½G applications; and provides possible strategies for new players.
