Moreover, as most of the newly-developed smartphones and tablets are incorporated with the technology to 3G and 4G, the demand for 3G- and 4G-enabled mobile hotspots is expected to increase. This is because to avail 3G and 4G internet connection for individual devices may not be cost-effective for end-users. As mobile hotspot routers allow multiple device access to 3G and 4G networks at a lower price, their demand is expected to accelerate, supporting the market growth.''
According to the report, one of the major drivers is the need for optimum utilization of network capabilities. With the increasing use of broadband services among end-users, it is a challenge for the service providers to manage the data traffic. As a result, network infrastructure providers have developed mobile hotspot routers. This enables the connection of multiple Wi-Fi devices over a single mobile broadband subscription. This helps the carrier to efficiently manage the network traffic. Hence, carriers are encouraging end-users to adopt mobile hotspot routers for broadband connection.
