New WiROI™ Tool Calculates the Financial Impact of Data Offloading to WiFi

New Windsor, NY – January 30, 2012 – Wireless 20/20's latest study analyzed the impact of deploying WiFi offloading from a 4G LTE network in New York City. To provide 4G LTE service in NYC, an operator needs 216 cell sites for adequate coverage. To keep up with the expected increase in demand for data over the next 10 years, the LTE coverage in NYC would have to be supplemented with an additional 1,879 cell sites. The study concluded that deploying a WiFi offload network in NYC will significantly reduce the burden of data traffic carried by the 4G LTE network and results in 7.2% reduction in the TCO over the 10 year period.


The following are highlights of the study findings:

  1. Optimum ROI is achieved with 33,138 access points place in high traffic areas.
  2. The 33,138 access points would be spread over a 789 square km area of NYC
  3. The average density of access points would be 42 per square km
  4. The total CapEx for deploying the WiFi access network would be $41M
  5. The 10 year cumulative OpEx would be $59M
  6. The number of capacity cells would be reduced to 432, a saving of 1,447 LTE sites
  7. The Total Cost of Ownership would be reduced by $253M
  8. Cumulative Free Cash Flow would improve by $287M
