Research and Markets: Global Mobile - Fundamental Changes to the Industry. Updated Report

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Mobile - Fundamental Changes to the Industry" report to their offering.

It is becoming increasingly clear that only structural change can save the mobile industry. BuddeComm regularly bring this issue forward, similar to the discussion in relation to the structural separation of the fixed networks, which we began just over a decade ago.

What we are seeing in the mobile industry is an infrastructure and a spectrum crunch.

Across Europe, the UMTS Forum is calling for additional spectrum to be identified and allocated to support the growth in mobile data and close the gap between demand for mobile services and available network capacity.
