U.S. Wireless Revenue Up 10% to $174.7B in '05

Telecom online reports today that Revenue in the U.S. wireless market totaled $174.7 billion in '05, up 10.7 % from '04, with an acceleration in handset revenue and a ramp-up in new wireless subscribers as key drivers of growth (according to TIA's 2006 Telecom Market Review & Forecast).

The wireless handset and device market totaled $15 billion in 2005 and is expected to increase 19.3 percent in 2006 climbing to $17.8 billion, according to the annual report.

What does that mean in terms of new wireless subscribers in '05? Try twenty-five million. Yep, that's "new" subscribers.

What does that mean for the wireless job market? Well, I'd say that's good news.
