Internet access

Emerging markets will drive mobile internet subscriber growth

In emerging markets, growth will be driven largely by operators signing up first-time customers at low prices, but in massive numbers. India alone will see dramatic rise in subscriber numbers - adding 375mn mobile internet subscribers thru 2021. Emerging markets will also dominate the list of countries with the fastest rates of revenue growth.


Despite a mature market, US mobile internet access revenue is projected to grow at 8.9% through 2021

Flattish growth or in some cases falling fixed broadband subscriptions and changes in consumer perception in what they want from a bundle will lead to fixed broadband revenue expected to reach US$59.9bn at 1.5% CAGR thru 2021. Conversely mobile internet revenues will increase by a CAGR of 8.9% to US$129.8bn as LTE subscriptions rise in parallel with demand for OTT streaming services and mobile data consumption continues its rapid increase.
