Mobile internet 'more important' than text

According to the latest 'TELCO Trend' survey conducted by Steria Mummert Consulting, mobile Internet stands to become the key future sales engine for the telecommunications sector.


Of the experts surveyed, 56.5 percent ranked the mobile Internet as the most important mobile communications service, followed by text messaging (54 percent), the mobile office (50.8) and voice services (44.4).


The demand for mobile Internet access is particularly strong among business clients, who want to be able to use e-mail plus address and calendar management on the road. Traditional telephony on the other hand is losing ground: Only four out of ten telecom companies expect to register long-term growth through sales of voice services.
