Key moments

By 2017 there will be 10 billion mobile connected devices. Some of those will be machine to machine, some will be laptops, some will be tablets, and many will be smart phones. We expect that the average mobile connection speed will be increased seven fold.
Duncan Mitchell
I think that in principle we’re not far off from a time when a gadget in itself will seem to us to be as much of a crude anachronism as we currently view the cassette tape or CD.
Andrei Dubovskov
We think that in five years 3G will be available to maybe 85% of the world’s population and LTE will be available to about 65% of the population.
Dmitry Maselsky
We are going to see in the next 3 to 5 years a complete revolution on how networks are constructed.
