Telecoms.com – 2014: The year ahead
Industry consultancy Northstream also shared its forecast that 2014 will see 50 per cent subscriber penetration of LTE services in multiple European markets. Operators’ revenue from media consumption will enjoy its peak year, the firm added.
“Given the widespread availability and maturity of LTE infrastructure and devices, European operators have a solid staging post to push for LTE,” said CEO and co-founder Bengt Nordstrom. “Northstream believes 2014 will be the year in which this drive will occur. The result of these efforts will see LTE subscriber share in a significant number of European markets reach nearly 50 per cent.”
