LTE ECOSYSTEM SNAPSHOT – FEBRUARY 2018

LTE user devices growth; LTE key numbers

Figure 1: LTE user devices growth


•  There are 651 LTE/LTE-Advanced commercially
networks (GSA: NTS Database - January 2018)
•  There were 2.54 billion LTE subscriptions globally by
the end of Q3 2017 (Ovum WCIS provided to GSA on 7
December 2017). LTE accounts for 30.3% of mobile
subscriptions globally
•  There are 10,655 LTE user devices including frequency
and operator variants from 602 suppliers verified in
GSA’s database (GAMBoD). This is 12% higher than the
number of devices GSA reported in November 2017.

These slides contain extracts from the GSA report “Status of the LTE
Ecosystem” published in February 2018 and available from

LTE user devices in main spectrum bands (FDD and TDD)

Table 1: LTE FDD user devices by band, Feb 2018 Table 2: LTE TDD user devices by band, Feb 2018

Note 1: Manufacturers have not declared operating frequencies or


fallback modes for some products
Note 2: Certain products are carrier or country specific and are
therefore not available in all markets
Note 3: A number of devices are currently listed as band “other”
