LTE Generates 61% Subscriber Growth in First Half of 2012, LTE Vendors Expect to See Over $1.7 Billion in 4G This Year

FARMINGTON, Conn., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- LTE is seeing rapid growth in 2012, and will generate over $1.7bn for the wireless vendors this year, a figure which will increase tenfold by 2017.  A recent report available from GII addresses the LTE roll-out situation in the MENA region. Industry experts say that the move to 4G is not only a way to increase capacity and data rates, but will also deliver returns for operators.


Global Information Inc (GII) recommends a second report that analyzes the deployment of LTE networks in Latin America from both the regulatory and service provider's standpoint. A third report available from GlI addresses the data-driven developments shaping the future of the U.S. market for wired and wireless telecommunications.

4G Latin America: Analysis and Forecast 2012-2017

560 million LTE subscribers will be active by 2017, of which 25% or 117 million will be TD-LTE users. Multi-mode devices will be essential to TD-LTE uptake, and the study forecasts that by 2017, 83% of devices will be capable of supporting both TDD and FDD modes. Operators appear to be taking the cautious approach to LTE for now, but a surge of investment will happen from 2013 onwards

This report examines the regulatory environment in critical markets across Latin America, encompassing roughly 80% of mobile service revenues in the region: most notably including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Colombia. This study also analyzes current and future 4G spectrum usage and allocation, and the major spectrum challenges face by both regulatory bodies and operators in the current environment.

This report also includes projections for 2012 to 2017 for deployments, subscribers, equipment and CAPEX across the industry.

LTE roll-out in the Middle East and North Africa: status and prospects

Operating as a mobile broadband-only service, LTE technology has been commercially deployed in four of the six Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) countries of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region as of mid-2012, and several key drivers and constraints will influence operators currently planning to launch LTE in the region in the near future.  Across the region, poor device availability and the general lack of harmonized spectrum and could make marketing LTE significantly more challenging than originally thought.

This report provides an outline of current status of LTE roll-out in the GCC countries in the MENA region, an explanation of core industry issues that future operators and vendors need to address, and detailed analysis of the drivers nad inhibitors that will influence future LTE roll-out in the region.
