A Bullish Forecast for Wireless Data Services

    Online News published in DMReview.com
June 11, 2001

Mobility-focused applications and consumer-based data services and devices will drive the North American wireless data market to grow from 7.3 million subscribers in 2000 to 137.5 million subscribers in 2005, according to Dataquest Inc.

The growth will be driven by the rollout of packet data networks on a nationwide basis, increased overall usage of wireless devices to receive messages and e-mail, inexpensive wireless data devices, and company specific applications, which improve the productivity of the mobile worker.

"Increasing mobilization capabilities of work forces, together with additional competitive pressures will drive the adoption of wireless data to enable corporate applications such as e-mail and messaging as well as specific vertical applications such as field," says Tole Hart, senior industry analyst for Gartner Dataquest's worldwide telecommunications and networking group.

Circuit-switched data service was the leading technology type by subscriber in 2000 with 38 percent of all wireless data subscribers. This was primarily because of the strong push by Sprint PCS and Verizon in gaining wireless Web customers.

By 2005, 70 percent of wireless data subscribers will be using cellular packet data networks. These networks provide strong coverage, combined voice and data plans with operators, and faster-speed service.
