German surf for 2.5 billion euros in the mobile Web.

Mobile phones are becoming increasingly intense as mobile Surfplattformen used. Fast networks and multimedia phones comfortable lead to extensive Surftouren. At least as popular but it is a phone function, even in the lame networks works best.
  Golden times for mobile service providers: Until the end of the year in Germany are 16 million mobile phones via UMTS to be connected to the Internet. Sun predicts that the industry association Bitkom. This would mean the end of 2008, more than twice as many mobile phone users on the fast mobile data networks can go online than in the previous year. By a total of 60 percent, said the Bitkom, have the number of UMTS terminals in this year.

For the mobile service providers should see this message for a sigh of relief care. Finally, the provider in 2000 around 50 billion euros for the UMTS licenses in the state pays. The construction of the networks has devoured more billions. The interest of users so far, however, remained far behind expectations.
But now it seems that the long-missing killer application but apparently found to be - the Web. There is nothing else than the normal World Wide Web is what the user now seems increasingly use their mobile phones.
That, however, only since mobile phones are no longer only on the portal pages of the respective network can access stripped down or "mobile" versions of well-known websites control. Much more can be with devices like the iPhone 3G, the HTC Touch HD, Sony Ericsson's Xperia X1 or the new BlackBerry storm quite normal web pages wonderfully mobile access. In addition to the high data transfer speed of UMTS are especially large and high-resolution screens, fast processors, as well as current devices, which even complex Web pages can quickly calculate.
MOBILE BREITBANDFORMATEUMTSUniversal Mobile Telecommunications System - is often referred to as mobile standard for third generation (3G), because it significantly higher data rates than its predecessor GSM allows. German UMTS networks usually a bandwidth of 384 Kbps for data from Mobilfunkmast the terminal. Regular DSL connections today offer übrlicherweise 1024 kbit / s. (more blogs in KNOW) HSDPAHigh Speed Downlink Packet Access - is based on UMTS on, but achieved significantly higher data transfer rates for the transfer of Mobilfunkmast to the terminal. The practically achievable data rate is currently at 1.4 Mb / s. Through technological improvements, it gradually to 5.1 Mbps rise. (more blogs in KNOW) GPRSGeneral packet radio service - this standard data when broadcasters cut into individual packets, sends them gestückelt and puts it back together with the recipient. By bundling multiple transmission channels is theoretically a transfer rate of up to 171.2 kbit / s !
possible. In practical operation, it is usually 55.6 Kbps - modems were so slow in the days before DSL. (more blogs in KNOW) EdgeEnhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution - technology to increase the transmission rate of data in GSM mobile networks. Through more efficient modulation techniques will be the sum of up to 384 Kbps to achieve - that is UMTS speed. Edge has been introduced in 75 countries. (more blogs in KNOW) WiMaxDie WiMax technology includes several standards for data on different radio frequencies. Some WiMax standards need a visual connection between the transmitter and receiver, other signals can also penetrate walls. When testing WiMax is already data transfer rates of more than 100 Mbps have achieved. Hermann Lipfert, an expert on wireless networks at the Munich Institute for Broadcasting Technology (IRT) estimates that in a regular WiMax wireless cell Tranferraten of 50 Mbps are realistic - under ideal conditions and application of all currently available te!

The DVB standard is also designed to Internet content to be transferred - in the frequency of a single analog television channel (about 7 MHz) match but just 13 megabits per second into it. If a single broadcast station ie 20 users hanging around the same time, a file download attempt, it is already closely - the data for each user would be less than one Mbit / s, ie lower than the cheapest DSL connections that are currently on offer are. "The biggest danger for this technology is, by the presence overtaken," said Sven Hansen of the computer magazine c't. " I transfer the content over DVB, which also goes in only one direction - just like watching TV. The back channel will be produced by other means, such as through a conventional telephone line. Mouse clicks in the browser received this method over the phone line to the prov!

(more blogs in KNOW) LTELong Term Evolution is the name that a number of mobile phone companies an additional standard of the fourth generation mobile telephony has been given. LTE is essentially a development of UMTS - but requires completely new hardware, including new broadcasting stations. LTE competes with the WiMax standard to the market leader in mobile Internet of the future - between the two standards will possibly a new format war erupt. LTE is recognized by experts over WiMax, however, about two years behind in terms of technological development. (More at blogs KNOW)
For the supplier is the rising popularity of UMTS but also that they can skim fat profits. At 5.1 billion euros Bitkom estimates of the revenue from mobile data services in 2008. Compared with the previous year would increase by 7.1 per cent. However, it is important to note that this revenue does not completely through web and e-mail queries can be generated.
Half of the turnover comes from the continued fees for SMS messages and, probably to a small part, multimedia messages (MMS).
More important than the look into the vast World Wide Web are mobile phone users is still short, sometimes major, sometimes not so important, but almost always personal text messages. And they were in the old GSM networks as quickly and comfortably as via UMTS.
