    "Near-term Catalysts

    The U.S. telecommunications industry is likely to be benefit in the near future from two developments: (1) recent approval of the FCC to initiate a fresh round of spectrum auction for the wireless industry; (2) significant technological inventions and innovations that make even a mature market like the U.S. highly lucrative for the telecom operators.

    On September 28, the FCC decided to free up spectrum currently used by TV broadcasters for commercial wireless networks and to deploy a nationwide interoperable public-safety broadband network. Huge proliferation of smartphones, tablets, and several other pocket-sized mobile devices significantly raised the demand for bandwidth for seamless wireless connectivity. The spectrum auction is expected to shore up $15 billion in the U.S. government exchequer.

    Moreover, a recovering economy speeds up the demand for real-time voice, data, and video manifold. The FCC has estimated that within the next five years, mobile-data demand will grow 25-50 folds from its current level. These latest developments are enabling the telecom service providers to undertake large network extension while upgrading plans. The decision of Congress is mainly aimed to solve growing consumer demand for efficient wireless networks."
