Mobile operators are expected to fully maximise their high-speed packet access (HSPA) deployments before eventually deploying 3G long-term evolution (LTE). Many operators will leapfrog from HSPA to 3G LTE, as the window of opportunity for HSPA Evolved is insignificant when compared to 3G LTE.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.wireless.frost.com), European Mobile Broadband (EuMoBro) Melee between 3G LTE and Mobile WiMAX, finds that by 2013, there will be around 22.4 million 3G LTE subscribers with service revenues totalling to euro 9,685.4 million in Western Europe. Both Mobile WiMAX and 3G LTE technologies are covered in this research.
