BuddeComm Intelligence Report - Mobile Broadband - Key Statistics and Insights

Wireless broadband is an integral and essential part of any advanced digital infrastructure. The mobile broadband market is fast becoming a major income revenue stream for the providers, having taken over the mobile voice sector as the key area of growth. But increased usage has caused data traffic jams on the 3G networks as this infrastructure was not designed for the rapid increase in traffic over the last couple of years.

The release of 4G/LTE mobile broadband and growing uptake by consumers and businesses will certainly ease the issue in the short term - but as user uptake increases so will the amount of bandwidth consumed. Anticipation of the growing demand has resulted in LTE becoming the fastest developing mobile technology to date.

This BuddeComm Intelligence Report includes recent industry insights and statistics on the global mobile broadband sector as well as an overview of the key competing technologies.

Latest developments:

Wireless broadband and FttH should be developed, in a complementary and harmonious way. Seamless integration between FttH and 5G will occur later on in this decade. In 2013 there are developments in working towards a harmonising of WiMAX with LTE and HetNet architecture is also a key trend. In 2013 almost half of the world's population is covered by a 3G network, according to the ITU.
