Saving Mobile Internet
2001 (English)Report (Other academic)
In this paper I will point out a number of very serious principal objections on the idea of a Mobile Internet, and why it will not work. At least not as currently planned. Then, I will show how some of the objections - the most serious ones - can be solved by taking a radically different path to the future. A path that is so different that most people hesitate to think about it since it may mean that the role of mobile operators disappears. The resulting project, called The RadioSphere, is run at the Centre for Distance-spanning Technology, CDT, in Sweden.When discussing concrete examples and general market situations I will use Sweden because of its very high penetration of broadband Internet to homes, PC's & mobile phones. It therefore has especially good prerequisites for pioneering the RadioSphere approach.
