HSPA/LTE accounts for 17.3 percent of PC broadband, says analyst
July 07, 2010 // Peter Clarke
Mobile broadband of the HSPA/LTE variety accounted for 17.3 percent of the total number of broadband connections in Europe at the end of 2009, according to market research company Berg Insight.
The number of HSPA/LTE mobile broadband subscribers grew by 71 percent year-on-year in 2009 to reach 25.0 million across Europe, Berg (Gothenburg, Sweden) said, and forecasted it would grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.6 percent to reach 81 million by 2015.
The North American market has evolved at a slower pace, with mobile broadband accounting for just 7.1 percent of the total number of connections. Between 2009 and 2015, the North American market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 34.8 percent to reach 42 million subscribers at the end of the period.
The levels of adoption of mobile broadband vary significantly across Europe, Berg said.
"Austria is the most advanced market with a penetration rate of over 15 percent, corresponding to 40 percent of all broadband connections in the country. Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Ireland and Portugal have also penetration rates above 10 percent. Belgium, Netherlands and Greece have on the other hand penetration rates of less than 3 percent," said Marcus Persson, telecom analyst with Berg, in a statement.
"The attach rate of embedded mobile broadband in notebooks was less than 5 percent in both Europe and North America last year. This will change as prices for the embedded modules decrease and an attach rate of almost 45 percent is expected already in five years," Persson concluded.
Huawei has established itself as the largest supplier of mobile broadband terminals holding a market share of 53 percent and has a particularly strong foothold in Europe, Berg said. ZTE is the second largest vendor with clear margins capturing a market share of 30 percent. Berg Insight estimates the total global number of shipped external mobile broadband devices in 2009 to be 66 million, with Europe and North America accounting for 24.3 million units and 5.6 million units respectively.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
