LTE services revenues to exceed $265 billion in 2016 : Juniper Research

service revenues generated by LTE mobile networks are forecast to grow rapidly
once networks are launched, exceeding $265 billion by 2016.

Whilst the total number of LTE consumer subscribers will
be higher than enterprise in 2016, it is a different picture from a revenues
viewpoint, with the consumer segment accounting for under half of total

LTE enterprise ARPU is forecast to experience lower rate
of decline than consumer ARPU.

Western Europe, North America and Far East & China
will account for approximately 84 percent of total revenue worldwide by 2016.

LTE service revenue will represent in excess of 26
percent of total service revenues from all mobile services across all
generations by 2016.

The introduction of premium service tariffs to provide
high end enterprise users with required guaranteed connections and/or service
levels was identified as key to derive incremental revenues for LTE.

Early LTE adopters will be top end users who are
currently in the higher echelons of monthly spend. This will be the case in
developing countries as much as in developed countries.

“We believe that high end enterprise users in
developing countries will be much closer in spend to similar users in North
America or Western Europe and certainly very distinct from the bulk of the
population that contribute towards the high level regional ARPU levels for all
generations, including 2G,” said Report author Nitin Bhas, Juniper
