451 Research estimated in September 2014 that US 4G LTE mobile connections would rise nearly 30% from 152.3 million in 2014 to 197.4 million in 2015. By 2018, the firm expected that total to reach 272.4 million.

Among US internet users polled, 50% of respondents who used 4G streamed or downloaded mobile video. In comparison, just 32% of non-4G users reported doing the same. This trend was consistent across the other countries studied—especially China and Australia. Read the rest at eMarketer.
