Cellular telephony has lead to the expectation of anytime, anywhere accessibility. The wide-spread availability of broadband connectivity provides access to the largest repository of information and entertainment materials on the planet (the world-wide-web).
Consequently, with more information, available in more places, people can be more and more mobile in both their work and personal life. Now, on the realm of taking these advances in connectivity to the next level plane, is a new technology called Long Term Evolution, or LTE.
This paper looks at the drivers for LTE, how consumers will benefit from LTE services and how LTE can fulfil operators' long term strategy by giving them the ability to bring innovative services, to drive ARPU growth and gain a competitive advantage.
