Over 100 million LTE Mobile Broadband Subscribers by 2014

[LTE numbers to grow significantly as broadband capabilities are embedded in more devices such as MP3 players, Netbooks and digital cameras.]

Hampshire, England -- The number of LTE next generation networks is set to grow significantly with the number of subscribers exceeding 100 million by 2014, according to a new report from Juniper Research.

The LTE report found that these market numbers will be buoyed by the embedding of broadband capabilities within consumer electronics devices such as MP3 players, Netbooks and digital cameras.

Market Momentum

Juniper Research forecast that whilst subscribers will largely use handsets such as smart phones, and laptops, consumers will be motivated to connect devices in the home by LTE.

Report author Howard Wilcox commented: "There is intense activity in the LTE market right now, with in excess of 30 network operator commitments. Operators and vendors alike are moving rapidly to jump on the road to LTE, attracted by the connectivity-based opportunities that the technology offers. Sony, for example, announced that network connectivity is one of 3 top priority actions.”

Uncertainties Ahead

However, the report determined that there are still several open issues that need addressing before the market takes off. One of these is the issue of device convergence: what will a smart phone look like, and be capable of, in three years’ time?

Further report findings include:

* Whilst early LTE adopters will be enterprise subscribers, consumers will begin to take up LTE based services towards 2012/2013.

* There will be multiple millions of LTE subscribers as early as 2011.

* Embedded LTE chipsets will become the second most popular means of access behind SIM cards by 2014.

Juniper Research provides a balanced assessment of the opportunity represented by the rapidly developing and very topical LTE mobile broadband technology. The report includes a comprehensive six year forecasting suite of critical figures, data and analysis on enterprise and consumer subscriber take-up, devices, network access via dongles, cards and embedded capability, chipset shipments, ARPUs and service revenues. The report also evaluates the key mobile operators and vendors pioneering in this developing market.
