Archived report. This report was archived in 2010 and has not been updated. Cellular mobile networks have been built for voice services and even more importantly have been finetuned over the years for efficient and effective voice transmission. While both 2G and 3G allow, in principle, for a large range of mobile data services, these networks can never be optimised for that. Voice will remain the killer application for mobile with some data services included as support services and niche market services. New initiatives such as the iPhone with its advanced functions will require more affordable wireless personal broadband (4G) connections to become truly mass market. This report includes an overview and analysis of developments in the mobile data industry, including brief case studies on four key innovations. It also provides statistics on the value of the mobile data sector, mobile data ARPU and an initial comparison of mobile broadband subscription costs.
Moreover, the customer service personnel at BuddeComm helped me remedy an administrative problem within 5 minutes of sending the request...seriously, less than 5 minutes. All in all, Budde.com is a well-functioning organization with a useful product.
