Why wireless is a true long-term growth sector


Author: Melanie Hollands

The wireless sector is enormous and, in general, I believe the wireless telecommunications sector is a long-term growth sector. In spite of its recent woes, I continue to believe that some of the best innovation in the coming years will be in this area. Although it is hard to generalize, for the sake of simplicity, I would divide the world into three categories:

  • Mature phone cultures, very high Internet penetration (e.g. the U.S., Korea);
  • Mature phone cultures, average Internet penetration (e.g. Europe, Japan), and
  • Developing phone cultures, low Internet penetration (rest of the world).
