500 Million Strong, and Growing

Just eight years after the inception of the first 3G/WCDMA from NTT DOCOMO of Japan, it has been confirmed by the UMTS Forum that 500 million users have been reached. In comparison to the fixed telephone network that has taken over a century to reach the same usage amounts this is a startling statistic.

WIth over 300 UMTS networks worldwide it is estimated that 40% of users are experiencing enhanced mobile broadband through HSPA while at least 35 networks are using HSPA+

With LTE (Long Term Evolution) networks in sight and ready to be expanded, the next generation of mobile communication promises to bring faster speeds, better mobile web enhancements and increased opportunities for e-commerce.
