Initially, the wireless industry was developed for voice communications. As the number of users rapidly increased, the wireless industry had to develop new technology to accommodate the demands. Now with the advancements in mobile telecommunications, the demand for non-voice data has increased. The future of the wireless industry will be hinged on how seamlessly the industry can implement new technologies to meet the demands of the mobile consumer. With the emergence of wireless broadband in the U.S., the U.S. telecommunications industry will have to take advantage of this technology to expand the market. This paper will look into this disruptive technology and what it will bring to the industry.
