Research and Markets, the world’s largest market research resource, announced that it has added research about wireless internet service providers in New Zealand to the information currently offered on its site. The information about New Zealand wireless reveals that the number of mobile broadband subscribers between 2009 and 2011 increased to nearly one hundred percent. While this has outshone many of the wireless broadband developments taking place in that country, major regional and city centers continue to enjoy coverage from a number of its main providers. In addition, the cost of wireless broadband is being reduced due to the competition from mobile broadband, causing the widespread availability of regional coverage to occur. According to the report, the wireless broadband process has become simpler, and both businesses and consumers are choosing their providers based on speed, cost and coverage.

A new deal between one of America’s largest wireless internet service providers and cable companies will allow the offering of wireless services to customers without the need to invest billions in building networks or acquiring wireless companies. Verizon wireless service will be made available to two of the largest cable companies in the United States. The cable companies will then price and bundle the service under their own brands. The new services being offered will include broadband and wireless voice and data, and customers will also be able to access and buy Verizon’s suite of wireless products, such as the iPhone. The $3.6 billion dollar deal will also allow the wireless giant and cable companies to market and sell each other’s services, making for more revenue on all sides.

A few short years ago, wireless internet service providers were just beginning to make their mark on the internet landscape. But today, wireless seems to be everywhere. A recent 4G Americas report reveals that 3GPP wireless technologies have exceeded 5 billion connections as of 2011′s second quarter. This is largely due to increased expansion of wireless networks in response to the demand for the technology. 4G Americas president Chris Pearson says that wireless is the main connection being used around the world by mobile devices than fixed line devices like telephones, PCs and televisions. In five years’ time, it’s expected that more than 7.5 billion people will have a 3GPP subscription. As well, analysts are predicting that wireless technology will be used by up to 50 billion people in just 9 years from now.
