A recent report from the GSA stated that more than 300 operators around the world have now committed to commercial deployment of LTE or are engaging in trials. As the next generation mobile technology continues to spread and extend across the world it makes sense to recognise, celebrate and reward the great innovations that are being made in the industry. Now in its third year, the annual LTE Awards, in associated with Telecoms.com, are now established as the leading event of its kind.
