Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
Despite all the excitement about 4G, it is important to note that although 2G connections have been declining since 2003, it still accounts for 70% of the total connections globally, and 2G will remain the second largest mobile technology for the rest of the decade. Moreover, 3G (which currently accounts for close to 30% connections globally) will continue to grow with the increasing penetration of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile broadband devices. In total, 2G and 3G market (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/274014-the-revenue-drill-squeezing-the-most-out-of-2g-3g-networks.html) will account for more than 80% of the total connections globally over the next 4 years.
The purpose of our research is to help:
- Mobile operators in formulating the right 2G/ 3G strategy over the next five years;
- Mobile operators that are mainly targeting price-conscious users, and the new bottom of the pyramid take up;
- Mobile operators in identifying the profitable 2G/ 3G opportunities across Latin America, Africa, Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe, and Asia-Pacific;
- Tier 2 mobile operators, that are severely reeling under competitive pressure from emerging market trends (such as increasing dominance of device manufacturers and OTT players), and finding it difficult to generate revenues;
- Mobile operators that are forced to postpone their breakeven timelines;
- Mobile operators that are struggling to manage high operating cost, and are continuously losing investor confidence;
- Tier 1 mobile operators, that are interested in best utilisation of their 2G/ 3G network bandwidth, and;
- In opportunity spotting and scenario planning for network technologies (2G, 3G, 4G) with short term and long term cost-revenue implications.

- The worldwide revenue contribution from traditional mobile services (Voice and SMS/ MMS) will exhibit a downward trend in the coming years. At the same time, revenue contribution from broadband services will have a sharp uptake. The trend can be mainly contributed to the increasing penetration and availability of smartphones and other data consuming mobile devices. However, as the devices' ecosystem is not in favour of 4G/ LTE offerings in most of the emerging markets, it would be more profitable to offer 2G/ 3G data services.
- 2G still accounts for 70% of connections globally, however, 2G connections will continue to decline in the coming years with the growing penetration of smartphone and tablets, and users' migration to next-generation networks. Despite all these developments, total 2G and 3G connections will account for more than 80% of the total connections globally over the next 4-6 years with 2G accounting for around 35% connections.
- Mobile device manufacturers and OTT players have hijacked almost entire attention of customers, and MNOs are currently reeling under that pressure. However, they should not panic but need to safeguard their position and avoid unnecessary risks. Identifying the segments with high profit margin or high volume potential, and holding their position in the market will offer great opportunities to monetise their investment in the long run.

- Our survey revealed that majority of OTT players are in pressure to collaborate with MNOs/ ISPs to ensure QoS and believe that QoS can only be guaranteed by partnering with data providers.
- Smart mobile devices are slowly entering into the workplace and the trend has started impacting the industry in two ways. On the one hand, demand for data and mobility services is growing exponentially, and on the other hand it is also driving enterprises to replace computing devices or promote BYOD.
- The demand for smartphones is growing rapidly and it is going to make more than 50% of the total mobile phones shipped globally in 2013. The worldwide shipment for smartphones will reach 1.7 billion by 2018.
- Most of the activities in the telco industry are currently revolving around mobile broadband. However, it must be noted that fixed line will not only carry at least ten times more traffic than the mobile network during the next 5-8 years, but it will also be crucial for the widespread growth of mobile broadband. In fact, fixed mobile convergence (FMC) will be the business model that will work best in the coming years through optimal use of fixed and mobile technologies.
- The global LTE subscriber base reached 62 million in 2012, exhibiting a year-on-year growth of over 370%. With more number of LTE networks as well as rise in the number of LTE smartphones in the market, LTE subscriber base will grow at faster pace during the forecasted period (at a CAGR of 40% during 2013-2018) and will cross 1 billion by the end of 2018.
