Ozzies love their wireless broadband


Australians will be using some sort of wireless broadband by 2007. “Wireless access will account for nearly 10 percent of Australian broadband connections within three years, according to Ovum, a research group. Ovum says 298,000 of 3.1 million broadband connections servicing Australian businesses and consumers by 2007 will be wireless. Ovum says the figure includes both fixed (Wi-Max) and mobile (MBWA) wireless broadband connections, but excludes wireless data connections employing 3G mobile handsets. Currently there is a big brouhaha brewing as incumbent Telstra and upstart UNwired square off for the market share. Ovum also points out that these numbers don’t include the 3G connections.
