Source: University of Florida
Successful diffusion of 3G mobile is necessary for the provision of many advanced applications via the mobile platform such as mobile broadband Internet and video. The current deployment of 3G services is significantly more developed in some countries than others. Through a regression analysis of 106 observations, this study examines the factors affecting such differences. It was found that multiple standardization policy, lower level of 1G and 2G penetration, and a higher level of income contribute to the diffusion of 3G mobile.
