The delivery of 3G data services has been a key topic at the annual 3GSM World Congress for the past five years, although the was only added to the show's name a year ago when the first commercial 3G networks appeared. The 3GSM organisers have to stage an event that speaks both to the consumer and business mobile data market, although in the case of 3G, it could be argued that neither market has been properly addressed yet in Great Britain. This is reflected by the fact that Hutchison SA concentrates its marketing on low-cost voice-call packages and video clips of football matches people can see on ITV on Saturday night.
