Next in list of possible major developments is the rise in internet protocol television (IPTV) services. Though BT vision and Virgin Media are already providing such services in the UK, more operators are expected to emerge this year. WIMAX, a wireless technology that can deliver high speed broadband over long distances, also has a mention on the list.

Five technologies that may become big in 2008:
