Mobile data traffic has increased almost 300-fold in the past 10 years

New research from Ericsson reveals that mobile data traffic has increased almost 300 times since 2011. The figures were revealed in the latest edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report, which was first published ten years ago.

Other headlines include an additional 5.5 billion smartphone users worldwide since 2011 and a forecast that around half of all mobile subscriptions by the end of 2027 will be 5G connections. Three-quarters of the world’s population is expected to be covered by a 5G network by 2027.

By the end of this year, Ericsson expects there'll be almost 660 million 5G subscriptions across the world, driven in part by falling 5G device prices.

Fredrik Jejdling, Executive Vice President and Head of Networks at Ericsson, said "Mobile communication has had an incredible impact on society and business over the last ten years. When we look ahead to 2027, mobile networks will be more integral than ever to how we interact, live and work. Our latest Ericsson Mobility Report shows that the pace of change is accelerating, with technology playing a crucial role."

The 2021 Ericsson Mobility Report can be downloaded from the company's website.
