By 2015, more U.S. Internet users will access the Internet through mobile devices than through PCs or other wireline devices, IDC now predicts.
That’s the broadband parallel to what has happened with voice services, where mobile voice for many users is the predominant and preferred way to use voice, while for many others represents the only way to use voice.
It would be stretching matters to say that fixed network services will not matter. Clearly fixed networks will be strategic for very-high-bandwidth applications and a substantial amount of voice traffic. But the shift of the entire telecom business to a mobile foundation is hard to miss.
