"Analysts Say Wi-Fi Complementary to Telecoms"

"Analysts Say Wi-Fi Complementary to Telecoms"
""Whether or not retail revenues ever reach the more optimistic forecasts of $5 billion to $6 billion (from around $100 million right now), the probability of large-scale disruption to existing platforms remains low, in our opinion," they wrote. "Indeed, our analysis suggest that Wi-Fi is entirely complementary to existing fixed broadband products, and since the fixed-line and cable industries own the 'anchor' home connection, the chances of Wi-Fi becoming commoditized by existing broadband players is much higher than vice-versa. For wireless, the ownership of billing relationships with the bulk of potential Wi-Fi users makes them very well placed to cross-sell the product."
