Economic Impact of Third-Generation Wireless Technology
DIANE Publishing, 2008 - 19 pages
The next generation of wireless devices and applications, called ¿third generation¿ or ¿3G,¿ combines two powerful innovations: wireless communications and the Internet. 3G is likely to provide substantial benefits to consumers, significant profits to producers of 3G products and services, and complementary benefits to related industries. To provide 3G applications most efficiently, adequate spectrum must be made available for commercial use. Delays in introducing 3G products and services can be costly. Government policy in allocating spectrum must weigh carefully all benefits and costs. Illustrations.
