U.S. LTE Subscriber 2015–2019 Forecast

This IDC study examines the U.S. LTE market and provides qualitative insights into the LTE strategies pursued by the prominent LTE marker players. A forecast of total LTE subscribers is provided through 2019 as a view of total LTE commitments by carrier.

"We have reached a point where there is parity among mobile network operators in terms of LTE network coverage," says Brian Haven, senior research analyst, United States Mobile Consumer Services. "Now that all of the top tier carriers cover over 80% of the U.S. population, the operators will look to increase speed, capacity, and reliability, as well as differentiate with features such as VoLTE and development of LTE-Advanced capabilities."
