Results from Ovum and Telecom Asia’s Asia-Pacific mobile broadband industry survey show a maturing industry. Although respondents in our 2009–10 survey still believe mobile broadband is good news, they are now more realistic about its benefits when compared to the more overt enthusiasm of 2008–09’s survey. Margin expectations are more reasonable, the threat to fixed broadband is better understood, and new charging methods beyond flat rates are being explored.
Executive summary
In a nutshell
Ovum view
Mobile broadband still good news, but realism sets in

Access is the killer application
Browsing is the leading traffic-generating application
Unlimited/flat-rate charging models most effective
Traffic growth poses challenges
Backhaul is restraining services; investment is required
Wired or wireless backhaul investment?
