Smartphone uptake continues strong momentum in Q3: Report
"3G and mobility are addictive. In India the entire premise of mobile broadband is very strong. The traffic in networks is growing and this will be driven by new subscribers," Ericsson India Head of Region Fredrik Jejdling said.
The report added that globally mobile penetration reached 91 per cent in Q3 of 2012 and mobile subscriptions total around 6.4 billion. However, the actual number of subscribers is around 4.3 billion, since many have several subscriptions.
"China alone accounted for around 35 per cent of net additions, adding around 38 million subscriptions," the report said.
However, the number of mobile subscriptions in India declined by around 18 million in the quarter.
"The reason is an increased focus on active subscriptions, with the decline coming from the removal of inactive subscriptions," it said.
