0 14

According to Nokia’s MBiT Index study, overall mobile data traffic grew by 50% in 2015, with 3G traffic outpacing 2G across all circles for the first time. This was the result of a mature network, device and content ecosystem. 3G device penetration more than doubled during the year while new network launches and expansions in existing circles boosted data adoption beyond larger towns and cities.

Sandeep Girotra, Vice President and Head of India Market, Nokia said: “Aggressive 3G network expansion in existing circles and new launches by operators have been instrumental in increasing data traffic in India.
