Wow! Mobile Data Traffic Increases 300 Times in 10 Years


Over the past 10 years, mobile data traffic has increased nearly 300 times. This data was revealed by Ericsson in the Ericsson Mobility Report November 2021.

Ericsson compared mobile data traffic in 2021 with 2011, when they first published the Ericsson Mobility Report. They also said 5G was on track to become the dominant mobile access technology globally based on the number of subscriptions by 2027.

Today, 5G is expected to account for about 50 percent of all mobile subscriptions worldwide, corresponding to 75 percent of the world's population and representing 62% of mobile data traffic from mobile phones worldwide.

By the end of 2021, it is estimated that there will be 660 million 5G subscribers worldwide. This forecast is based on high demand for 5G devices in China and North America, which is also being driven by lower prices for 5G devices. By the end of 2021, the 5G network is expected to reach more than two billion people.

The number of cellular subscriptions in Southeast Asia and Oceania has exceeded 1.1 billion, with Indonesia ranking second globally based on net additions during the third quarter of 2021. Indonesia recorded net additions of 23 million during the quarter.

5G subscriptions in the region are expected to reach nearly 15 million by the end of 2021 and grow positively over the next few years, with an estimated total of around 560 million by 2027.

Southeast Asia and Oceania will see the fastest increase in data traffic per phone globally, reaching 46GB per month by 2027 - with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 34 percent.

Total mobile traffic data will grow accordingly, at a CAGR of 39 percent, reaching 46EB per month, driven by continued growth in 4G subscriptions and 5G uptake in markets where 5G is rolling out.

"In the initial phase of its introduction in Indonesia, 5G enables service providers to provide consumers with a better mobile broadband experience and increase network capacity to manage the ever-increasing data traffic," said Ronni Nurmal, Head of Network Solutions Ericsson Indonesia, Wednesday (15/15/2020). 12/2021).

"Over time, we look forward to the emergence of new innovative 5Guse cases in the field of 5G for business and IoT use cases. Ericsson looks forward to the opportunity to work closely with communication service providers to provide the best 5G experience for Indonesian consumers and support the government's agenda towards service digitization. and enable Industry 4.0 in the country," he added.
