The article discusses the need to increase backhaul capabilities as wireless carriers in the U.S. see data usage increase on their 3G networks. According to Michael Howard, a principal analyst with Infonetics Research, backhaul is not insignificant anymore, as wireless carriers globally spent $16 billion on it on 2004. He added that operators will double their backhaul spending. However, although they will spend more to upgrade their backhaul choices, they will be getting more for their money.
