BuddeComm Intelligence Report - 4G LTE and WiFi - Global Trends and Statistics

Synopsis

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 linked to the 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.

This BuddeComm 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 BuddeComm report: BuddeComm Intelligence Report - 5G Global Trends and Leading Regional Countries 2018.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
