Abstract

This paper explores the impact of wireless telecommunications on emerging economies while focusing on the progress made recently by China in a comparison to the US. The implications for developing economies, like China, and their potential for moving past other nations with established, traditional architectures are significant. China's lack of traditional fixed-line telecommunications architecture has prepared to seemingly 'leapfrog' other countries like the US with its use of widespread wireless technologies. Finally, we discuss the major challenges to China and the US.
