100 Million+ 4G Wholesale Subscribers by 2016?

That is exactly what ABI Research is forecasting in its new study, “4G Wholesale Market.” By 4G wholesale subscribers, ABI means subscribers who are managed through a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that buys access from a mobile operator. Today, there are 3.8 million such subscribers. What will drive such impressive growth over the next four years? ABI believes that the market will make it simpler for MVNOs to offer different, more flexible subscription plans, while the high performance of 4G with respect to speed and latency will make it an easy sell to consumers. Also contributing is the willingness by partners in the space to share the admittedly high costs of building out the 4G network, as well the eventual shift from WiMAX to LTE.
