Infonetics: Mobile broadband to drive service revenues

Infonetics Research forecasts mobile operator revenues will reach $877 billion in 2010, driven in large part by mobile broadband service revenues. Total mobile operator service revenues reached 628 billion in 2008, up 13 percent over the previous year. Infonetics said voice services will continue to be a factor in the growth of total revenues but said that growth will slow through 2013. Meanwhile, service revenues from LTE are expected to grow rapidly, reaching $41.7 billion worldwide in 2013. Article
