Since 1997, the wireless industry has exploded with exponential growth.  Every measurable area: minutes used, 911 emergency calls, text messaging, and data consumed has exploded.  Among the many staggering statistics is the rapid growth of a new category, wireless-only households, where there is only a cell phone and no traditional land line.
