LONDON – Last year, mobile broadband subscriptions based on HSPA, EV-DO & LTE grew to 844 million, representing over 14% of all cellular subscriptions; and they are forecast to grow further at 40% CAGR to eventually reach 4 billion subscriptions by 2016. Individually LTE subscriptions are estimated to surpass 600 million by the end of 2016 with a CAGR of over 148% in the next five years. In 2016, as many as 30% of all LTE subscriptions are likely to be based on TD-LTE as prominent TD-LTE networks mature like China Mobile's planned TD-LTE deployment.
