Abstract

Abstract The development of applications for third-generation (3G) wireless networks will feature extensive competition between different “dominant designs.” Design competition is likely to involve a distinctly national dimension, with certain countries becoming trendsetters for others. Based on European Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) auctions and other considerations, it is argued that the UK and Germany have the potential to become national “lead markets” for m-commerce and other applications of 3G even though they were relative laggards in mobile telephony.
