The Yankee Group predicts that Canada’s four national mobile operators will see a significant increase in short messaging services (SMS) traffic, increased penetration rates among youth users and improved awareness of wireless data services, following an agreement that enables inter-carrier short messaging. The network interoperability agreement was signed in Toronto earlier this month (RoW, Nov. 13/01). The added service will allow subscribers of one wireless carrier to send and receive short messages from users of a rival carrier.
