Healthy Pipes: Mobility, Ethernet Bode Well for Wholesale in 2013

Indeed, in the 2011 survey, mobile operators, international operators and content providers once again are the top three customers segments deemed to have the greatest growth potential, says Yankee Group. Topping the short list, a full 89 percent of wholesale respondents agree or strongly agree that mobile-related services will be “the largest driver of wholesale growth for at least the next three years.” And just as 4G is billed as the future of mobility (Parks Associates expects more than 560 million 4G/LTE global subscribership by 2016), it also is a key component to the future of the wholesale market, dubbed by Palumbo as the expected “darling to wholesale operators around the globe.” According to the survey, 77 percent of wholesale respondents agree that 4G offers a “game-changing” opportunity for the wholesale market.
