4G LTE netbooks, tablets to represent 20% of LTE subscribers by 2015: Juniper Research

Video streaming and gaming are viewed as the potential top services on LTE

By CBR Staff Writer

The usage of LTE 4G enabled netbooks and tablets will be used by approximately 20%, or 1 in 5, LTE subscribers by 2015, according to a new study by market research firm Juniper Research.

The report said that the advantages of LTE mobile broadband including high data rates and reduced latency will result in the proliferation of new and upgraded end user devices such as netbooks, tablets, digital cameras and games consoles to add to laptops and smartphones.

Juniper Research 4G LTE report author Howard Wilcox said that the mobile operators will be keen to embed a wide variety of devices with broadband wireless connectivity, because they see this as a route to stave off ARPU declines.

"Our forecasts show that there will be roughly as many LTE netbooks and tablets combined as laptops by 2015," Wilcox said.

The report revealed that the video streaming and gaming were viewed as the potential top services on LTE, benefiting from the higher speeds and reduced latency made possible by LTE.

In addition, LTE netbooks and tablets are projected to outstrip LTE laptop shipments, particularly in the consumer market, the research firm said.
