Mobile phone technology has evolved rapidly in recent years. In particular the mobile phone industry is now witnessing the development of third generation or 3G mobile technologies. While these 3G technologies appear to provide a number of market and financial benefits for the mobile phone company, research on third generation technologies seems to suggest that these technologies are still highly speculative. As such, the decision of the mobile phone company to adopt 3G technologies must be considered in terms of potential benefits and risks.With the realization that third generation technologies pose such a substantial risk for the mobile phone company, there is a clear impetus to examine the risks and benefits of implementing these technologies. Utilizing this as a basis for investigation, this research considers the benefits and risks associated with the implementation of 3G technologies at Vodafone. Through a careful consideration of what has been written about the benefits and drawbacks of 3G technologies and a review of the Vodafone organization and its current market position, it will be possible to provide a comprehensive overview of the potential risks that would be associated with Vodafone's decision to implement this new technology.

(3G mobile The frequency at which new 3G phones operate is of critical importance to improving the data capacity and throughput that can be achieved on these devices. ?This high-speed data capacity enables more content to be sent to and from mobile handsets through calls, messaging and internet-based content.?

[...] When examined overall, it appears as if Vodafone has both the reputation and sheer financial size to manage the implementation of 3G technologies. However, a review of the organization's weakness demonstrates that Vodafone may incur some notable difficulties when it comes to changes that require considerable capital outlays. Exploring the weaknesses of Vodafone, researchers note that the organization is currently carrying a considerable amount of debt. company has a net debt of around 8.3 billion? (p. 6). Experts argue that this debt load could have a notable impact on the ability of the organization to undertake new projects. [...]

[...] Conclusion When all of the data presented in this investigation is synthesized overall, it seems reasonable to argue that the risk associated with 3G technologies is too great for the Vodafone organization to incur. Although 3G technologies currently appear to be a revolution for the mobile phone industry, there is ample evidence to suggest that these technologies are just a stepping stone in the development of mobile technologies. Given the precarious financial situation that currently exists at the Vodafone organization, the realities of 3G technologies simply do not appear to provide the organization with a clear advantage for improving its financial position.
