WASHINGTON July 8, 2010- A recent report by ABI Research entitled “Wireless Spectrum, Services, and Technology Deployment Market Data” shows that 2011 will be the year of LTE.  Even though WiMax has been declining in popularity it will still hold a major share of the high speed mobile broadband market.

“However,” ABI Research analyst Bhavya Khanna cautions, “don’t expect WiMAX to bow out just yet. Despite setbacks including Russia’s Yota switching to LTE, 188 WiMAX networks are now in trial or commercial operation worldwide. With India’s wireless broadband spectrum auction recently concluded, expect that number to grow in 2011. Clearwire, a WiMAX service provider in the United States, continues to build out its network and add subscribers, buoyed by the launch of a popular WiMAX-capable handset, the HTC EVO 4G.”

By the end of 2011 there will be 132 LTE networks either in full deployment or in initial trials.
