DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 29, 2019--

This Intelligence report provides unique and valuable information on 4G LTE and WiFi technologies including industry developments, regional comparisons and global statistics. For information on 5G, please see separate report: Intelligence Report - 5G Global Trends and Leading Regional Countries 2018.

In 2018 there is still vast room for growth for 4G LTE as it only accounts for around 35% of mobile technology market share globally. LTE technology is expected to carry most of the mobile traffic for at least the next decade - alongside a slow transition to 5G.

4G LTE has represented an important growth opportunity for the mobile industry, and many operators around the world have invested heavily in rolling out the technology. In a twelve-month period alone; LTE technology uptake grew by over 40% - at the expense of other technologies like 3G.

LTE was in fact, was one of fastest technology migrations ever seen.

WiFi has also established itself as the quiet achiever in the mobile broadband arena. Today, most heavy broadband use of smartphones and tablets takes place in homes, offices, airports, schools, universities, internet cafes and so forth - and in most of these situations the WiFi networks are used for this, not the mobile networks.

Key Developments:

  • Next generation networks, based on wireless technologies such as LTE, 5G and Wi-Fi as well as fibre broadband technology, will include M2M and IoT infrastructure, facilitating the development of smart homes, buildings and cities.
  • By 2025 4G/LTE market share will have increased to around 2/3 of the mobile subscriber base.
  • Western Europe has the largest market share of Wi-Fi hotspots - however another region is expected to overtake it by around 2021.
