Wireless Internet

The IMT-2000 wideband standard is driven by skyrocketing demand for wireless Internet applications. According to Cahners In-Stat Group research, in the United States alone more than 85 million people subscribe to wireless services, and consumers in 46 million U.S. households have Internet access. It was only a matter of time before people would want to have access to the Internet from their wireless handsets. Cahners In-Stat Group projects that more that nearly 25 million people in the U.S. will use mobile wireless Internet services by 2003. In Japan, demand for the much publicized i-Mode service is primarily driven by the fact that the vast majority of Japanese people do not have wireline Internet access. Within less than six months, more than 5 million Japanese people subscribed to this service, and phenomenal future growth is inevitable.

Internet users are becoming wireless users, and expect applications to converge and fit smaller, untethered form factors. Cahners In- Stat Group expects that consumers, whether mobile or at their home PCs, will exhibit insatiable appetites for Web downloads and messaging; streaming media, color graphics, gaming, Java-enabled location-based applets, Internet browsing, and access to corporate intranets through secure firewalls. (Moreover, there are bandwidth-intensive applications, as yet unknown, that will unfold within the next few years.)
