US and Japan lead the way in high-speed LTE mobile broadband race

The first beneficiaries of LTE mobile broadband networks will be business users in developed countries led by the US and Japan, according to a new report by Juniper Research.

The telecoms analyst predicts that global service revenues will exceed $200bn by 2015 from a standing start in 2011.

However, a number of European countries, including the UK, will lag behind as their spectrum auction timetables delay deployment of LTE.

The report, entitled ‘4G LTE Revenue Opportunities’, argues that LTE premium services for high-end business users will be critical revenue drivers for mobile operators.

It forecasts that consumers will typically spend at only about half the monthly rate of enterprise users.
