The slump in telecoms spending is easing, according to the Communications Management Association, which holds its conference in London next week.

The CMA will release the full results of its annual membership survey for 2003 at the event. This will show that broadband ADSL use at companies is up by 31%, Wi-Fi wireless Lan use has increased by 21%, and use of GPRS mobile data has risen 30%.
