relatively easily enter the market through using the conventional communicator for land line, existing WiFi bases and so on.

- Consumer: Difficult to change their perception from mere "mobile phone" to the seamless service. What is the advantage for

consumer to buy these products? Can normal consumer understand the advantage of seamless services?

- Industry rivary: The competition will be intense for the vertical or horizontal integration among the ISPs, mobiles, fixed

lines and WiFis. Need for scale of economy to lead the industry standard, cost leadership, infulence to the government and

regulatories and absorbtion of the contents provider.
