April 13, 2010 - Consultancy insists telcos can manage surging data usage with HSPA+, mobile offload technology, tiered pricing.

Operators needn't rush to rollout 3G LTE (long term evolution) networks in order to cope with surging mobile data usage, according to Arthur D. Little.

The consultancy explained to Total Telecom ahead of Tuesday's publication of the ninth annual Arthur D. Little-Exane BNP Paribas telecom report that players should focus for now on upgrading their HSPA networks to HSPA+; make use of mobile offload via either WiFi or femtocells; and manage demand for data services.

"Mobile data is going sky high – we forecast traffic to increase by [a factor of] 32 by 2015," said Didier Levy, director of Arthur D. Little's telecoms practice.
