Download As significant as the demand for wireless broadband connectivity is in developed countries, the demand is far outstripped by that in high-growth countries such as India and China. According to Alcatel-Lucent�s Mike Seymour, in mature economies broadband access is increasingly considered a universal service and users have a high expectation of access anywhere. However, the economic downturn has impacted which of the two major technologies, WiMAX or LTE, will succeed in the 4G world. This is reinforced by the fact that the MNOs have moved into trials with LTE. Seymour presents a clear look at all the pertinent considerations that might direct the course of the move to 4G networks.
