Mobile Broadband Trends and Forecasts

It took only five years for the number of mobile broadband LTE subscriptions to reach the 1bn mark, compared with eight years for Facebook and 11 years for legacy mobile services to reach 1bn users. Further, it took a mere 14 months for the second billion LTE subscriptions to be added. During this time, traffic has increased exponentially, putting pressure on mobile network service providers that are experiencing only modest increases, if any, in their top line revenue.

Global Data’s proprietary, industry-leading Mobile Broadband Forecast, quantifies and forecasts demand for mobile-enabled services across 100 countries worldwide. By sizing and forecasting more than 500 KPIs at a country level, GlobalData is able to help companies pinpoint growth opportunities within the mobile broadband ecosystem at the country, service area and operator level.

Please join us as we present some of the findings from our Q3 Mobile Broadband Forecast release. During the webinar, we will explore questions like, what are the countries and regions experiencing the fastest rate of subscriber growth? Where is penetration of mobile computing devices like smartphones, tablets and datacards the highest and where is there room for growth? What is the rate of M2M/IoT adoption in different regions and countries? What is the rate of traffic growth across countries and regions?
