17 Aug 2011

The total number of global WiMAX subscriptions passed the 20 million mark at the end of June 2011, according to a report published by Infonetics Research. The study claims that WiMAX subscriber growth will continue to be strong in 2H11, and forecasts the world total to reach 25 million by the year end. ‘Subscriber growth continues in all regions as WiMAX operators build their customer bases, but we have tracked notably strong growth in the US, the Indian sub-continent, and Latin America. With the levels of operator activity and device ecosystem growing, we forecast WiMAX subscribers to surpass 100 million by the end of 2015,’ said Infonetics Research analyst Richard Webb.
