ACCORDING to the Global Mobile Suppliers Association, LTE (Long-Term Evolution) is the fastest developing mobile system technology ever. Indeed the LTE market has evolved considerably since the launch of the first network in Sweden in December 2009.
It is moving to a more mature phase of development with around 230 commercial LTE networks now in operation and over one billion connections expected by 2017.
Research by the GSM Association in 2013 revealed that LTE users consume 1.5GB of data per month on average – almost twice the average amount consumed by non-LTE users.
Meanwhile, in developing economies, operators have noted that LTE users can generate ARPU (average revenue per user) of seven to 20 times greater than non-LTE users. In developed markets, operators have found that LTE can generate an ARPU uplift ranging from 10% to 40%.
Will Malaysia witness the same impact with its LTE networks being rolled out more aggressively this year?
In today’s Disrupt #19: LTE – Long Term Earnings?, we will discuss the key drivers and assumptions behind Malaysia’s LTE connection forecasts, including developments in spectrum, devices, services, and network coverage.
We will also look at the impact that LTE has on data usage and ARPU, and look at where the opportunities are for entrepreneurs.
These opportunities are not just with the telcos. Our discussion will also explore what services can be rolled out for enterprises that wish to leverage on the speedy data networks of LTE.
The panellists are DiGi.com Bhd chief operating officer Albern Murty; and Nipun Jaiswal, the Singapore-based telco analyst at UK firm Analysys Mason.
As a bonus to attendees, DiGi is giving away copies of Digerati50 to all attendees!
Disrupt #19 will be held this evening (June 25) at 5.30pm, at the National ICT Association of Malaysia’s (Pikom) new Hq at Empire Damansara (E1, Empire Damansara, E-01-G, No 2, Jalan PJU 8/8A, Damansara Perdana, Petaling Jaya , Selangor).
