MediaPost Publications - U.S. Mobile Broadband Users To Surpass 140 Million By 2013 - 01/07/2009
More than 140 million U.S. consumers will be paying for mobile broadband services in 2013--up from 46 million in 2008, according to a new study by Parks Associates.

The research firm also predicts in its "Mobile Broadband: Beyond the Cell Phone" report that the number of smartphones sold in five years will more than triple to 60 million as multimedia devices go mainstream.

"Consumers will grow more comfortable with mobile broadband, and the service will become part of their daily lives, as they will be able to surf the Web, play games, share pictures, and connect via social networks from anywhere," said Anton Denissov, a research analyst at Parks Associates.
