Abstract:  The mankind today stands on the threshold of a unique and great era, i.e., Wireless Information Society (WIS) where space and time are virtually shrinking. Competition between mobile and fixed telephony for the market share of the subscriber base as well as revenue earned are discussed. Global trends pertaining to the growth of the WIS are analyzed and presented with the help of mathematical models. Future projections have been made for the subscriber base as well as revenue earned from mobiles and fixed telephones. Mobile telephones, equipped with latest communication technology, are likely to be in an advantageous position vis-à-vis fixed telephones. With the technological advances in the field, mobile internet services will further enhance the adoption of mobile telephone services in the society. It is visualized that there would be more economies with mobiles than fixed lines and it will become the trendsetter for the future generations.
