The article focuses on the positive impact of the increasing sophistication of wireless services, the merger of major carriers and the continued interest in fiber-optic cable, on engineering design and construction firms in the U.S. Two wireless mergers alone, one between Cingular Wireless and AT&T Wireless and the other between Sprint and Nextel, promise to provide a bonanza of work over the next 12 to 18 months as the companies rationalize and integrate their nationwide networks. Cingular and AT&T Wireless, each have up to 23,000 cell sites, or more than 45,000 combined, according to Cingular.
