Even though 4G’s share of mobilke subscriptions was less than three percent at the end of the second quarter of 2013, it is expected to account for slightly more than 20 percent of the total data consumed on mobile networks worldwide in 2013. 

After surpassing 3G networks in 2016, 4G networks will go on to capture 66 percent of data traffic by 2018, according to ABI Research.

In fact, 4G data traffic will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 82.2 percent between 2013 and 2018, ABI Research says.
