The mobile sector continues its lead

The mobile sector will continue to be a focus of interest in 2011, with increasing mobile broadband demand, new mobile devices, and growth of m-applications and services, according to the 11th edition of ITU’s report Trends in Telecommunication Reform.
Trends in Telecommunication Reform 2010–2011 says that ICT markets around the world are becoming more competitive in just about every segment, from international gateway services to wireless local loop (WLL) and third-generation (3G) mobile communications. In 2010, more than 93 per cent of countries worldwide allowed competition in the provision of Internet services, and 90 per cent in the provision of mobile cellular services. A further 92 per cent have competitive 3G mobile broadband markets. The new report confirms ITU’s earlier estimates that worldwide, mobile cellular subscriptions now total over 5.3 billion. This figure also includes 940 million mobile broadband subscriptions, which are expected to reach 1 billion before mid-2011. Mobile cellular penetration in the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russian Federation, India and China), which represent more than 40 per cent of the world’s population, has grown from 4 per cent in 2000 to an estimated 69 per cent at the end of 2010.In terms of number of subscriptions added between 2000 and 2010, China leads the BRIC countries with some 764 million new subscriptions. In terms of relative penetration, however, the Russian Federation has accomplished truly remarkable growth from 2 per cent to more than 164 per cent over the period. China and India have both reached a mobile penetration rate of 60 per cent, each of those countries adding around 300 million mobile subscriptions in 2010.Most of 2010’s mobile growth was in Asia-Pacific, which saw the number of mobile cellular subscriptions grow by 490 million (of 630 million globally), to reach 2.6 billion. For the first time, Asia-Pacific now has over half the world’s mobile cellular subscriptions.
