Adult mobile content growing for 3G networks
Adult mobile content is growing to be one of the killer applications for 3G networks, as features such as video streaming and fast data downloads become more popular says the latest Visiongain report: Mobile Adult Content 2005.
Following the huge amounts paid out for 3G licences, operators are trying to recover the investment by providing a variety of contents by taking advantage of the faster download speed enabled by their 3G networks.
