The digital economy has enjoyed significant growth in the past few years - many local (country-specific) businesses have developed and marketed apps. This has resulted in a boost in the adoption of apps in the mobile commerce and mobile financial services categories.

The Monetising LTE: Capitalising on the Growth of Mobile Handset Data market research report is published in August 2014. It says operators that can bring 4G tariffs to low-end smartphone users will be winners because of a higher potential ARPU uplift. The number of 4G (LTE) handset connections worldwide will increase from 178 million in 2013 to 1.4 billion in 2018 - a growth of 670% - while mobile handset data service revenue will only grow by 64% during the same period. This presents a major challenge for operators - how to monetise LTE services. Operators are deploying a variety of strategies including price premiums, reserving LTE for premium tariffs, bundling content and broadening connectivity to a wider range of devices through multi-device tariffs.
This report addresses the following topics and provides recommendations for operators.
- The challenges of monetising mobile data: Analysing mobile revenue forecasts, assessing the revenue impact of LTE launches, and the impact of this on mobile ARPU.
- LTE bundling strategies: Evaluating operators' value-added services and connectivity extension (that is, multi-device tariffs) bundles for LTE tariffs.
- The broader market opportunity: Assessing the impact of LTE on the prepaid market, data allowance overage and the MVNO market.
