NSN Tracks a 54% Rise in Mobile Data in India over 7 Months

Mobile data traffic in India spiked 54% between December 2011 and June 2012, according to a newly released MBit Index report from Nokia Siemens Networks.


The report aggregates real data traffic across all the 2G (GSM and EDGE) and 3G multivendor networks managed by Nokia Siemens Networks for operators in India. The company currently provides 30% of the total 2G and 3G networks in India which provide services to about 300 million subscribers. This large sample size, amounting to a third of India’s 2G and 3G mobile networks.

The report further reveals that data traffic generated by 3G services has increased by 78% while that of 2G services has increased by 47% during the same period.

"Our report highlights India’s enormous appetite for consuming data services on the go and hence the need to provide high quality mobile broadband services to satisfy users," said Sandeep Girotra, head of India region at Nokia Siemens Networks. "2G has been relatively successful in driving mobile broadband use in India, but we are now witnessing 3G pushing the mobile broadband use to unprecedented levels."
