60% of US SMBs have a mobile data solution in place

According to Yankee Group, 60% of all small business owners have already implemented or are planning on deploying a mobile data solution over wireless. This reflects a significant jump in wireless adoption plans when compared to a 2005 survey asking the same question, where 54% of respondents said they would not implement a wireless program. The preference to work directly with wireless carriers for small business services has decreased from 45% in 2004 to just 18% in 2006.
