Despite recession, wireless infrastructure CAPEX should grow in 2010

In the most pessimistic of three new ABI Research forecast scenarios, worldwide capital expenditure on wireless infrastructure should still post a year-over-year growth of 1.5 per cent between 2009 and the end of 2010. The most optimistic of the three forecasts sees that CAPEX figure reach as much as 3.7 per cent growth. "It's no surprise that 2009 will be a bad year for wireless infrastructure spending," said ABI analyst Aditya Kaul. "But 2010 is likely to see a renewed focus on spending due to competitive pressures around improving capacity and coverage." Article
