Half of all mobile connections in the USA expected to be 4G LTE by the end of this year

Strategy Analytics says its recent reports predict that LTE (4G) will account for 50% of all mobile connections in the USA by end of 2014. That’s expected to increase to 79% by the end of 2018.

It means the United States will lead the world in 4G LTE connections this year, with more than a third of the 528 million LTE connections expected worldwide by the end of the year. Japan and South Korea will also be key players in 4G LTE during 2014.

Susan Welsh de Grimaldo, Director of Wireless Operators & Networks at Strategy Analytics, said “2014 will be a great year for 4G LTE in the US. T-Mobile and Sprint will work hard to level the network playing field by building out high-capacity coverage, while AT&T and Verizon Wireless will look to broaden the appeal or functionality of LTE with services such as VoLTE and sponsored mobile data, as well as a broader range of connected devices such as cars and wearables. This will help the US to buck the trend of revenue stagnation or decline seen in many developed markets today.”
