Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9r456h/lte_business) has announced the addition of the "LTE Business Models & Charging Mechanisms 2014 - 2018" report to their offering.
Commercial LTE deployments gained further momentum in 2013, with the total number of LTE networks growing by 78% and the trend will continue in 2014 also. A number of factors are responsible for the accelerated growth of LTE deployments across the globe such as
- Operators in both developed and developing markets now prefer LTE over other mobile network technologies to meet the future demand of mobile data services, and;
- Vendor commitments to offer affordable LTE devices in the short term.
More than 260 commercial LTE networks are available today across the globe and several operators are engaged in trial and feasibility study. Few operators have also been able to encourage their customers to adopt high-speed data services, and register significant growth in ARPU. However, most of the LTE launches have failed to seize the real potential of the technology and are now burdened with huge Opex as they need to carry the legacy networks as well.
We have analysed the launch, business model, monetisation strategies and uptake of several LTE networks to find out:
- What prompted them to launch LTE?
- How have they fared so far?
- And, how other MNOs can have a better LTE program?

You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
