According to a new report from Juniper Research, worldwide service revenues generated by LTE mobile networks are forecast to grow rapidly once networks are launched, exceeding US$265 billion by 2016.

While the total number of LTE consumer subscribers will be higher than enterprise in 2016, it is a different picture from a revenues viewpoint, with the consumer segment accounting for under half of total revenues.

According to Juniper, the introduction of premium service tariffs to provide high end enterprise users with required guaranteed connections and/or service levels was identified as key to derive incremental revenues for LTE.

“We believe that high end enterprise users in developing countries will be much closer in spend to similar users in North America or Western Europe and certainly very distinct from the bulk of the population that contribute towards the high level regional ARPU levels for all generations, including 2G,” said Nitin Bhas, author of the report

High traffic subscribers using video, web and email services will be the critical early adopter segment to benefit from LTE.
