Operators that can bring 4G tariffs to low-end smartphone users will be winners because of a higher potential ARPU uplift.
The number of 4G (LTE) handset connections worldwide will increase from 178 million in 2013 to 1.4 billion in 2018 - a growth of 670% - while mobile handset data service revenue will only grow by 64% during the same period. This presents a major challenge for operators - how to monetise LTE services. Operators are deploying a variety of strategies including price premiums, reserving LTE for premium tariffs, bundling content and broadening connectivity to a wider range of devices through multi-device tariffs.
This report addresses the following topics and provides recommendations for operators.
