3G Rollout: This Time It's For Real
Posted: 15-Jun-2004 [Source: Business Week]

[A look at the growth of 3G in Europe since the launch of the world's first 3G service, NTT DoCoMo's FOMA in Japan, three years ago.]

By Andy Reinhardt in Paris, Kerry Capell in London, Jack Ewing in Frankfurt -- "Third-Generation mobile-phone service is taking off in Europe. You read that right: The famous 3G technology has finally arrived, with its promise of cheaper voice calls, fast wireless Internet access, and sexy multimedia services such as streaming video clips and online gaming. In case you have forgotten, this is the same 3G that provoked a $120 billion spectrum-licensing frenzy during the dot-com boom and then nearly destroyed Europe's telecommunications industry with multibillion-dollar losses. Now, two years late, 3G is here -- and not just from a few hardy pioneers in a handful of test markets. Giants like Vodafone (VOD ), T-Mobile (DT ), and Orange (FTE ) are rolling out business and consumer 3G service from the Baltics to the Mediterranean, even as 3G remains a distant dream in the U.S. The monster that ate telecom has been tamed at last."
