Mobile uptake spurs add-on services

The telecommunications industry is a fast-growing sector which is no longer limited to coverage and connectivity, says Alan Ellis, CEO of ST Group.

With the majority of South Africans owning or having access to a cellphone, argues Ellis, add-on services and niche products such as broadband, data services and mobile TV are in high demand.

How does the television and Internet access on my mobile phone work?

Your mobile phone communicates with the Internet the same way your PC does. The only difference is that a mobile phone uses a wireless rather than a line-based connection. That’s why you can use the Internet to access the same Web-based applications on your mobile phone as you do your PCs: search engines, email, dictionaries, etc.  In recent years, the advent of broadband in our homes has made it possible to watch TV and movies on our PCs.  Now new faster 3G wireless networks are bringing broadband speeds to mobile phones, so we can watch TV and movie viewing on your phone.
