Global LTE Market Trends Examined in New In-demand Research Report Now Available at MarketPublishers.com

LONDON – Over recent years, the whole world has been witnessing a considerable increase in LTE adoption. There have been over 36 fully commercial network launches and 150 LTE-enabled devices available in the market. Telia, Swedish incumbent operator, stood the first to launch LTE services in late 2009, which was followed by some commercial launches across Western Europe, the U.S and the Asia Pacific. During the second half of the current year there was another series of deployments across the Middle East, with the Saudi Telecom Company (STC), Zain and Mobily announcing commercial network launches.

Forecasts say there will be over 120 operational LTE networks by 2012. LTE subscriptions have already gone beyond 6 million, with the U.S amounting to over 70% of global subscriptions. Along with the early availability of LTE coverage, compelling pricing strategies, like those offered by Verizon Wireless, have played a crucial role in LTE adoption.

New database “LTE Insights Service - The LTE Ecosystem: A Global Analysis of Deployments, Subscriptions, Devices and Operator Strategies” elaborated by Signals and Systems Telecom has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd.
