Research: Operators to use LTE-enabled netbooks and tablets to boost ARPU

Juniper Research estimates LTE-enabled netbooks and tablets will account for one fifth of the market by 2015. "Juniper's view is that mobile operators will be keen to embed a wide variety of devices with broadband wireless connectivity, because they see this as a route to stave off declines in average revenue per user," said Howard Wilcox, a senior analyst at Juniper. "Our forecasts show that there will be roughly as many LTE netbooks and tablets combined as laptops by 2015." Article
