Europe Mobile Broadband Market Trends and Opportunities to 2026

Summary

Europe Mobile Broadband Market Trends and Opportunities to 2026, a new Telecom Insider Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the mobile broadband market in Europe. It delivers quantitative and qualitative insights into the mobile market, analyzing key trends, competitive dynamics, and growth drivers in the region.

'Governments and regulators in Europe are working in tandem to drive and develop mobile broadband infrastructure and adoption, especially in regards to 5G - with major high-speed broadband coverage targets set across Europe.

The European Commission (EC) has a vision to transform Europe into a Gigabit society and to become a digital single market. The EC’s targets include a 100Mbps broadband coverage across all member states by 2025.

The COVID-19 crisis has put the emphasis on the importance of digital infrastructure - including high-speed, reliable mobile broadband access - and has prompted a number of telcos to accelerate their 5G rollouts. This has also boosted activity in the towerco and tower assets monetisation space. Moreover, the region continued to witness a number of M&A deals over the past year, in support of telcos' growth aspirations.

Mobile broadband development also provides more service bundling and monetization opportunities for telcos - e.g., OTT video, cloud gaming, home office solutions (e.g., UC&C), and smart home services.
