Total smartphone traffic will triple in 2011. By 2016, users living on less than 1 percent of the Earth’s total land area are set to generate around 60 percent of mobile traffic. We are living in exciting times. Inall parts of the world, people are adopting more advanced mobile devices that enable connectivity anywhere, anytime. This trend is taking us towards a society where places, people and devices are constantly connected – a networked society. Global mobile penetration is now at 82 percent, and the total number of mobile subscriptions is at around 5.8 billion. Growth is particularly rapid in China andIndia, where 50 million new subscriptions were added in Q3 of this year alone. At the same time, behavior is changing just as rapidly. Smartphone users are now browsing the internet, chatting online, playing games and checking emails almost constantly – even before getting out of bed. Fueled by mobile broadband – where subscriptions have grown by 60 percent year-on-year – the data consumed bysmartphone users is surging. Mobile data surpassed voice in Q4 2009 and doubled voice in Q1 2011. These and many more interesting data points are presented in this report, alongside our insights and analysis. We hope you find it engaging and valuable.
