According to the firm’s forecasts, the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, China and South Korea are expected to mainly contribute to this growth. This dynamic will be supported by the manufacturers. Apple, Samsung, LG, Nokia, HTC, Motorola, Blackberry, Huawei, ZTE and Pantech are considered to be the most active in this area.

“It is clear that 2013 will be the year of 4G,” said Neil Mawston, executive director of the firm.
