Most Web Surfers to Be Wireless by 2002
Posted: 11-Apr-2000 [Source: Industry Standard]

[The shift to wireless will impact companies and IT professionals as the Internet makes its move toward Mobile, according to IDC.]

By Rebecca Sykes -- "By the end of 2002, wireless subscribers with Internet access will outnumber the wired, according to International Data Corp.

"More than 40 million U.S. households are online, but there are more than 75 million cellular or personal communications systems subscribers and over 40 million paging subscribers in the U.S., according to Iain Gillott, an analyst with Framingham, Mass.-based IDC. (IDC is owned by International Data Group, an owner of The Standard.) By mid-2001 all new digital cellular and PCS handsets will be wireless application protocol-capable, so the number of people accessing the Internet from wireless devices could increase dramatically, Gillott said.

"The numbers could also get a boost from telecommunications carriers, which may push customer services via wireless devices as a cost-cutting measure, according to Gillott. For example, a carrier pays $1.50 to $2.50 to print out a customer's bill and send it through the mail, he said. Sending notification to customers through their wireless devices could cut that cost by as much as a dollar, Gillott said.
