May 21, 2001 Market researcher Business Communications Co. (BCC) has issued a technology review of the U.S. broadband industry, covering the period 2000-2005. The market forecast estimates that expenditures on high-speed data networks will increase from a total of $24.35 billion in 2000 to $90.84 billion in 2005, an average annual growth rate of 30.1%.

The report concludes that recent technological advances in wireless systems have made wireless an effective medium for carrying data as well as voice traffic. With download speeds approaching 2.4 Mbits/sec, wireless Internet connectivity becomes competitive with Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) and cable-modem technologies, fast enough to allow mobile devices to receive not only e-mail and text, but also video, audio, and multimedia files.
