Why A Career in the Wireless Industry?

According to CTIA, the Wireless Association, the Unites States wireless industry is valued at $195.5 billion, which is larger than publishing, agriculture, hotels and lodging, air transportation, motion picture and recording and motor vehicle manufacturing industry segments. It rivals both the computer system design service and oil and gas extraction industries. The wireless industry directly/indirectly employs more than 3.8 million Americans, which accounts for 2.6% of all United States employment.

The wireless industry accounted for $33 billion in productivity improvements for United States businesses in nine categories. Over the next 10 years, these efficiency gains will be worth more than $1.4 trillion. Continued 4G wireless network investments could mean investments of $25 billion to $53 billion – bringing $73 billion to $151 billion in GDP growth – and provide 371,000 to 771,000 jobs by 2016.
