The article provides information on the fixed-mobile convergence (FMC), the integration of wireline and wireless technologies. The FMC forecasts have been declining because carriers are more cautious about bringing services to the market and the attendant costs of deployment. The value of FMC is in the ability to increased retention and acquisition of new customer but not as a stand-alone services. The advantage of FMC is the ability to boost signal inside a home.
