We all know the Internet has ignited a global wave of innovation that is improving our lives, – and driving commerce.
Across several geographies, we are discussing the need to find the best regulatory framework for the communications industry, so I wanted to start to emphasize this by focusing on the latest market trends:
- Global mobile broadband subscriptions passed 2 billion in 2013 and are predicted to grow 4 times by 2019, reaching 8 billion.
- Video is growing 55 percent annually and will represent more than 50 percent of the mobile data traffic in 2019.
And these market trends call for more network investment and for the right public policy to encourage more deployment of LTE.
