This report analyzes the trends in the mobile broadband market from both consumer and mobile service provider perspectives. It examines mobile operators’ broadband initiatives, challenges, and strategies to better monetize opportunities from launching broadband enabled computing devices and related access and value-added services.

"Mobile operators promise better use experience with the forthcoming 4G mobile broadband technology. At the same time, the more capable mobile network will drive the adoption of bandwidth-consuming devices and services. Operators must balance mobile bandwidth needs with the goal to maximize their revenue potentials,” said Harry Wang, Director of Mobile and Health Research. “Over the next few years, we are going to see mobile operators fine tune their operating models and actively explore new revenue growth opportunities in both the consumer and enterprise markets.”
