Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) August 18, 2011
It has always been predicted that small business expenditures on wireless services would someday exceed that of wireline voice. That “someday” will be in 2012 as wireless becomes the largest category of telecommunications spending for small businesses, according to new research from In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com). Wireline data spending and cloud computing services round out the four spending categories.
“Connectivity has become the life blood of businesses’ efforts, but it is particularly crucial to small businesses as many operate without a brick-and-mortar presence to customers,” says Greg Potter. “One can already see the strength of wireless in 5-9 and 10-19 sub-segments. It is the 20-99 sub-segment, however, that will maintain the dominance of wireline voice through the end of this year.”
