wireless facts it s all about consumer demand
Wireless Facts: It’s All About Consumer Demand

2005 consumer statistics from T-Mobile USA

  • Number of text/IM/email messages
    • 14.9 billion, or, on average, 784 per customer
  • Number of times customers used their phone (calls placed and received)
    • 4Q05, on average, each customer placed or received 341 calls
    • At that rate, there were 75-80 billion calls placed or received

1 By the close of 2005, wireless subscriptions will hit nearly 2 billion on a worldwide basis, with cellular mobile dominating the wireless technology field, according to a trends study from Deloitte Research

2 Tenth Report, Implementation of Section 6002(b) of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993; Annual Report and Analysis of Competitive Market Conditions With Respect to Commercial Mobile Services, WT Docket No. 05-71, FCC 05-173, released Sept. 30, 2005, at page 73

Today’s Landscape
  • What is important?
    • Providing seamless infrastructure, fulfilling e911 mandates
      • Industry surveys tell us #1 reason to own cell phones - personal & public safety, especially for families
      • Surveys also find that coverage issues at home and dropped calls lead the list of specific complaints
  • Supplementing existing networks in order to meet customers’ demands and improve use of voice, data and true mobility
    • Wireless is already integral to everyday living
    • Incumbent upon providers to design & build sites to meet rising use of handsets
      • For 2G, 2.5G, 3G, 4G
next generation
Next Generation
  • Let’s not forget another meaning of next generation -- today’s youth will rely completely on wireless
    • They will EXPECT seamless coverage - wherever they live,work & play
    • And they will vote - from their handsets!

How Many Kids Have Cell Phones?

  • 46% of 10 to 18 year olds own a cell phone. On average children get their first cell phone at age 14
  • 10 to 11 year olds 14%
  • 12 to 14 year olds 35%
  • 15 to 17 year olds 67%
  • 18 year olds 82%

a balanced solution
A Balanced Solution
  • Why does placing cell site facilities seem adversarial?
    • Citizens want a voice, providers want to be heard, public officials want to ensure fair decision making, media wants to educate
      • This is somehow difficult to manage
  • When will we agree: this is all about abalanced solution?
    • This is above & beyond politics
    • How should we work together in order to provide seamless solutions?
  • Balanced solution= best solution for the right location and the right purpose
what does wireless alternative technologies mean
What Does “Wireless Alternative Technologies” Mean?
  • We’re living a communications evolution - every one of us is a stakeholder & has a responsibility to its progress
  • Providers’ technical evolution differs at different points in time - networks are not one size fits all
  • Supplement, fill in, reinforce, improve, strengthen - not replace
  • “Towers” is inaccurate/ “cell sites” is correct
    • Correcting public perception of the words we use
  • “Alternative” is a misnomer

Keeping Our Eyes on the Prize
  • All site types are alternatives
    • DAS, flag poles, macro sites, antennas on utility poles, micro cells, etc. are infrastructure alternatives
      • All are part of network and community solutions
  • Our common job is to serve our citizens, customers & build a consistently reliable infrastructure for emergency services
    • Everyone wins when we operate from a platform of clear & transparent communications
    • There is no alternative for trust
