In a presentation given at the Femtocells World Summit, Informa Telecoms & Media reported that there are now in excess of 2.3 million 3G femtocells globally compared to 1.6 million 3G macrocells. Worldwide, commercial femtocell services have reached a total of 31, which represents over 60% growth in deployments in the past quarter alone. This market growth is reflected in the fact that 8 of the top 10 mobile operator groups (by revenue) now offer femtocell services. Those mobile operators include AT&T Group, France Telecom Group, NTT DOCOMO Group, Sprint, Telefonica Group, Deutsche Telecom Group, Verizon Wireless, and Vodafone Group. In the majority of these markets, the devices now outnumber all generations of cell sites.
