Introduction To Xohm : Description Of The "Wireless Driving Growth" Chart And The "Broadband Driving Growth" Chart Shown On Slide 2

This slide contains two charts, the first depicting wireless driving growth of voice minutes, and the second depicting broadband driving growth of subscribers. The "Wireless Driving Growth" chart shows that between 1992 and 2008, total voice minutes combining wireline and wireless voice traffic grew and will continue to grow substantially, with a growth of three times in total usage. Though wireline minutes reached a peak in about 2000 and declined thereafter, growth in wireless voice minutes more than made up the difference after 2000, and wireless voice minutes in 2007-2008 will account for more than half of total voice minutes. The "Broadband Driving Growth" chart shows that between 2003 and 2010, with estimates used from 2006 through 2010, total subscribers to Internet access service have grown and will grow substantially, with narrowband subscribers constantly declining, but broadband growth more than making up the difference. As of 2007 broadband subscribers account for more than two-thirds of Internet access, and by 2010 they will account for about six-sevenths of Internet access."
