2011 Asia-Pacific Mobile Broadband Market Outlook
A strong driver for the adoption in the mobile broadband market in Asia-Pacific is the lack of fixed-line infrastructures in populous markets such as China, India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. The Asia-Pacific region expects a boost in the use of Long-Term Evolution (LTE) technology due to the proliferation of smartphones, and other devices in the area. The region has already made a strong start with LTE; seven networks have already been commercially launched in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines, and Australia. In this study, Frost & Sullivan research breaks down the market regions and examines the total market drivers and restraints, and offers market forecasts through 2016.
