Wireless Operator Performance Benchmarking Q4 2017

Report Summary:

India and China dominated global mobile data traffic growth in Q4 2017, a combination of their overall size and rapid price evolution in both markets. Data traffic grew 245% in India and 197% in China, though only 60-70% in most other regions. While Reliance Jio continues to have a significant destabilizing impact on the India market, with overall ARPUs down 24% in Q4, data adoption has had a much more positive effect in China where ARPUs increased 3.5%.

This data table tracks the operational and financial performance of 259 active wireless operators, which collectively account for over 80% of the world's cellular subscriptions.
