Metric: WCDMA network market growth slows

New findings from the Dell'Oro Group claim that growth in the WCDMA network market is slowing. The WCDMA network market grew 13 percent in the second quarter of this year compared with last year. WCDMA network growth slowed to 13 percent for the first half of 2005, compared to 44 percent in the first half of 2004. The researcher claims that a lack of affordable WCDMA handsets is slowing the carrier demand for WCDMA network equipment and services and curbing carrier expansion plans.
