LTE Deployment Starting to Make an Impact says Strategy Analytics
Posted: 09-Feb-2012 [Source: Strategy Analytics]

[Strategy Analytics reports average advertised download speeds increased last three months due to LTE deployment and 3G upgrades.]

Boston -- Analysis of Mobile Broadband Tariffs from the Strategy Analytics Mobile Broadband Price Benchmarking Service, “Mobile broadband – prices falling while download speed and allowances grow,” reveals that the average advertised maximum download speed has increased dramatically over the last 3 months, due to LTE deployment and 3G upgrades to HSPA/HSPA+ technologies.

Author, Pawel Kmiec, says, “Strategy Analytics analysis shows that the average advertised maximum download speed now stands at over 14 Mbps, an increase of over nine percent in the past quarter. This rapid growth comes from the recent move to 4G or LTE technology in many countries, including Austria, Australia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Turkey and the USA.

* The number of plans with maximum download speed advertised above 21Mbps represents over 20% of the total;

* The number of tariffs in the fastest download range (between 50Mbps and 100Mbps) grew 114%, from 22 to 47 in just 3 months.

Based on the pace of change seen in the past two years of tracking mobile broadband pricing, Strategy Analytics expects the average maximum download speed to exceed 15Mbps by mid-year and 20 Mbps by the end of 2012. Average data allowance will edge upward, toward a norm of at least 8GB.”
