Some of this is scary: U.S. Mobile Advertising To Hit $1.2 Billion this year
It really is incredible. The growth in mobile now seems like a tidal wave. Here’s a few notable clips from a new report by JP Morgan:
– JP Morgan analyst Douglas Anmuth says the firm expects mobile to be the single biggest factor accelerating Web growth for the next several years
– mobile data traffic is already three times the level of the wired Internet globally in 2000
– the build-out of next-generation networks will increase connection speeds tenfold by 2015
– The roughly $600 million in mobile advertising last year was equal to only a fraction of the $26 billion in wired Internet spending but mobile advertising could ultimately become larger than Web-based advertising
