3G Data Service Usage in India Grew By 78 Percent in First Half Of 2012

According to the latest reports from Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), the 3G Data Service usage in India has grown by around 78 percent in the first half of 2012. Surprisingly, the highest demand was seen in Category B circles, which witnessed a significant growth rate of over 87 percent from December 2011 to June 2012. Overall the growth of 3G Data usage has grown by around 78 percent, while 2G has grown by around 54 percent in the mobile data traffic across the nation. The numbers have been established by taking the cumulative real traffic on all the 2G and 3G networks operated by multiple vendors and managed by NSN for all the operators across the nation. The numbers in the report clearly shows the increasing appetite for strong data services on the move, which consequently demands for better mobile broadband services for satisfying the users. The report also said that the current cut in the tariff by the operators has also accumulated the adoption of 3G services by the users across the nation. The 3G traffic across the nation grew by 7 percent/month from December 2011 to May 2012, however, after the tariff slash from all the operators, the growth surged to 17 percent. It’s worth mentioning that 3G users devour 4 times extra data than the 2G users, which enables around 20 percent to 25 percent growth in general data services, growth. If the same growth rate of mobile data consumption sustains in India, these figures are expected to double by June 2013.
