Some people suggest that one possible solution is using smaller cells and closer proximity cell sites. However, this is only moving the congestion bottleneck either to the backhaul infrastructure or deeper into the network core. For example, in many cases the backhaul of nearby cell sites needs to be chained or meshed between them due to the coverage limitations of such networks. Hence, the same infrastructure is now required to carry the traffic of more cell sites. In other cases, the core network capacity is challenged, by the need to support more cell sites.
Mobile Internet usage is driven by application, content and quality, not by raw speed. Much like the financial Big Mac Index, the industry will soon come up with its own ‘Charlie’ Index to differentiate the QoE (Quality of Experience) between operators’ networks by the viewing quality of a particular YouTube video. QoE is no longer nice-to-have, but a differentiating MUST. LTE represents an opportunity for operators to come up with charging innovation and value-based pricing. Services like HD video, or Operator charging for OTT, deliver added value for which subscribers would be much more inclined to pay.
