Mobile big five band together on ads
The Guardian reports here that the five biggest mobile operators have struck a ground-breaking deal with the Internet Advertising Bureau in a bid to develop the nascent mobile advertising sector into a serious medium alongside press and TV. The deal will see the IAB launch a mobile advertising version of the authoritative twice-yearly PricewaterhouseCoopers report on the UK internet advertising industry, and includes the formation of a mobile steering group.
