Top 20 Internet Countries


China Moves Toward a 5G Future
The Chinese telecom market is the largest in the world in terms of subscribers and is undergoing transition. Mobile subscriptions outnumber fixed voice connections and voice is giving way to data as the primary revenue generator.


In the Indian Mobile Market a Major Shakeout is Inevitable Insights
India continues to be one of the fastest growing major telecom markets in the world. It is also one of the largest. Sweeping reforms introduced by successive Indian governments over the last decade have dramatically changed the nature of telecommunications in the country.


USA mobile operators fast-tracking 5G developments
Declining revenue from voice services is compensated for by high growth in mobile data use, itself supported by upgraded networks supporting LTE-based services. Smartphone penetration is also high, which also encourages mobile data use among subscribers.


Brazil has one of the largest mobile markets in Latin America
Brazil is connected through submarine cables to the USA, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. A number of new cable systems are due to come into service by the end of 2018 which will increase bandwidth and push down broadband prices for end-users.
