The Future of Mobile: is 4G LTE really replacing 2G and 3G?

Posted by Jennifer Shin on Feb 10, 2016 8:30:00 AM

Over the past twenty years, mobile telephony has made some remarkable strides, evolving from a low-quality, voice-only service to broadband IP data service available to almost anyone, anywhere with the right device. According to the Groupe Speciale Mobile Association (GSMA) -- the international consortium of mobile service providers promoting the standardization, deployment, and promotion of mobile telephony – just a short three years ago, approximately 75 percent of global wireless connections were 2G. In the intervening brief period of time, 3G rapidly follows, 4G LTE enters the scene and service becomes all about broadband mobile data. Interestingly, the GSMA is predicting that while growing numbers of US and European mobile subscribers are all about 4G LTE and data service, much of the rest of the world continues to build out 2G and 3G networks in an effort to quickly bring affordable mobile service to regions currently underserved by any telephone service.

Even as the MVNO market continues to evolve, one thing remains constant – the need for a solid business plan and an awareness of the three key factors that can make or break it.

Expanding your market through partnerships

Posted by Jennifer Shin on Jun 9, 2015 8:30:00 AM

If you’re a mobile network operator that has reached its market saturation point, perhaps it’s time to consider partnering with another company – even in a different industry – to expand your horizons. 

According to a 2013 PwC survey and analysis, the US wireless market has reached a point where just about anyone who wants a mobile phone has one. Smartphone sales have been experiencing double-digit growth annually for several years, to the point where mobile subscribers are exhibiting a marked decrease use in voice services in favor of more data-heavy mobile packages. What this reveals is the decline of old-school, mass-market, voice-and-text-oriented mobile operators in favor of more-focused, nimble MNOs. 

What does this mean if you’re a staid, conventional MNO?
