The convergence of WiFi and cellular networks is well on its way with combination services to be launched in 2006, says a new report from

Analysis firm Senza Fili Consulting in Seattle, WA.

Using technology known as unlicensed mobile access, or UMA, wireless network providers can link WiFi, cellular and other technology such as BlueTooth. Senza Fili said UMA use will drive combined services to a customer base of 55 million by 2010.

The US market will have more than 26 million users and drive $1.6 billion in revenue within five years, the firm said in its report.
