  • 1. MOBILE-BROADBAND UPTAKE CONTINUES TO GROW AT DOUBLE-DIGIT RATES The number of mobile-broadband subscriptions reaches 2.3 billion, with 55% of them in developing countries Active mobile-broadband subscriptions per 100 inhabitants, 2007-2014* Globally, mobile-broadband penetration will reach 32% by end 2014 – almost double the penetration rate just three years earlier (2011) and four times as high as five years earlier (2009). In developed countries, mobile-broadband penetration will reach 84%, a level four times as high as in developing countries (21%). Mobile broadband remains the fastest growing market segment, with continuous double-digit growth rates in 2014. Mobile broadband is growing fastest in developing countries, where 2013/2014 growth rates are expected to be twice as high as in developed countries (26% compared with 11.5%). By end 2014, the number of mobile-broadband subscriptions will reach 2.3 billion globally, almost 5 times as many as just six years earlier (in 2008). “I am pleased to present the latest ICT statistics. The new figures show that, by the end of 2014, there will be almost 3 billion Internet users, two-thirds of them coming from the developing world, and that the number of mobile-broadband subscriptions will reach 2.3 billion globally. Fifty-five per cent of these subscriptions are expected to be in the developing world. Behind these numbers and statistics are real human stories. The stories of people whose lives have improved thanks to ICTs. Our mission is to bring ICTs into the hands of ordinary people, wherever they live. By measuring the information society, we can track progress, or identify gaps, towards achieving socio-economic development for all.” Brahima Sanou, Director of the ITU Telecommunication Development Bureau The World in 2014 ICTFACTS AND FIGURES 84 Per100inhabitants Developed World Developing 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014* 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 32 21 Note: * Estimate Source: ITU World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators database
  • 2. AFRICA LEADS IN MOBILE-BROADBAND GROWTH Mobile-broadband penetration in Africa reaches close to 20% in 2014, up from 2% in 2010 Share of active mobile-broadband subscriptions, by level of development (2008, 2011, 2014*) By end 2014, 55% of all mobile-broadband subscriptions are expected to be in the developing world, compared with only 20% in 2008. Active mobile-broadband subscriptions by region, 2014* and growth rates, 2011-2014* Mobile-broadband penetration levels are highest in Europe (64%) and the Americas (59%), followed by the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) (49%), the Arab States (25%), Asia-Pacific (23%) and Africa (19%). The Americas region, with the second highest penetration levels, will be home to more than half a billion mobile- broadband subscriptions by end 2014, and the growth rate will remain above 15%. Although by the end of 2014 Asia-Pacific will be home to close to 1 billion mobile-broadband subscriptions, the region’s penetration rate lags behind other regions, including the Arab States and CIS. All regions continue to show double-digit growth rates but Africa stands out with a growth rate of over 40% – twice as high as the global average. By end 2014, mobile-broadband penetration in Africa will have reached almost 20%, up from less than 2% four years earlier. 2014* 2.3 billion 2011 1.2 billion 2008 422 million Developing Developed Note: * Estimate Source: ITU World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators database 45%55% 40% 60% 20% 80% Developed Europe TheAmericas CIS World ArabStates Asia& Pacific Developing Africa 64 84 59 49 32 25 23 21 19 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 Note: * Estimate Source: ITU World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators database 42,9% 20,9% 19,4% 15,7% 14,9% 11,8% 0,00% 10,00% 20,00% 30,00% 40,00% 50,00% 60,00% 70,00% 80,00% 90,00% 100,00% 20 11-2012 2012-2013 2013-2014 Note: * Es mate Source: ITU Worl dTelecommunication/ICT Indicators database Africa Asia & Pacific Arab States The Americas CIS Europe 43 21 19 16 15 12 100 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 Africa Asia & Pacific Arab States The Americas CIS Europe 2011/2012 2012/2013 2013/2014* Percent Per100inhabitants
  • 3. ALMOST 7 BILLION MOBILE-CELLULAR SUBSCRIPTIONS WORLDWIDE The developing countries are home to more than three quarters of all mobile-cellular subscriptions Mobile-cellular subscriptions, total and per 100 inhabitants, 2005-2014*, and by region, 2014* The number of mobile-cellular subscriptions worldwide is approaching the number of people on earth. Mobile- cellular subscriptions will reach almost 7 billion by end 2014, corresponding to a penetration rate of 96%. More than half of these (3.6 billion subscriptions) will be in the Asia-Pacific region. In developing countries, mobile-cellular penetration will reach 90% by end 2014, compared with 121% in developed countries. Mobile-cellular growth rates have reached their lowest-ever level (of 2.6% globally), indicating that the market is approaching saturation levels. The continuous increase in mobile-cellular subscriptions is mostly due to growth in the developing world: penetration in developing countries continues to grow twice as much as in developed countries (3.1% compared with 1.5%, respectively, in 2014). Africa and Asia and the Pacific, where penetration will reach 69% and 89%, respectively, by end 2014, are the regions with the strongest mobile-cellular growth (and the lowest penetration rates). Penetration rates in the CIS countries, Arab States, the Americas and Europe have reached levels above 100% (since 2012) and are expected to grow at less than 2% in 2014. Share of mobile-cellular subscriptions, by level of development (2000, 2005, 2014*) The developing countries’ share continues to increase and by end 2014, the number of mobile-cellular subscriptions in the developing world will account for 78% (or more than three-quarters) of the world’s total.

  • 4. FIXED-BROADBAND GROWTH SLOWING DOWN IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES 44% of all fixed-broadband subscriptions are in Asia-Pacific,compared with only 0.5% in Africa Fixed (wired)-broadband subscriptions per 100 inhabitants, 2005-2014* Fixed-broadband penetration continues to grow, albeit slowly (at 4.4% globally in 2014), mostly due to a slowdown in developing countries, where fixed-broadband penetration growth rates are expected to drop from 18% in 2011 to 6% in 2014. In developed countries, fixed-broadband penetration will grow at around 3.5% in 2014 compared with 4.8% in 2011. In 2013, the number of fixed-broadband subscriptions in developing countries overtook the number in developed countries; a trend that is expected to continue, given the higher growth rates in developing countries compared with developed countries. Fixed (wired)-broadband subscriptions per 100 inhabitants, by region, 2014* 44% of all fixed-broadband subscriptions are in Asia-Pacific, and 24% are in Europe. In contrast, Africa accounts for less than 0.5% of the world’s fixed-broadband subscriptions and despite double-digit growth over the last four years, penetration in Africa remains very low, at 0.4% by end 2014. Africa, the Arab States, and CIS are the only regions with double-digit fixed-broadband penetration growth rates. The Americas region stands out with the lowest growth in fixed broadband, estimated at 2.5% and reaching a penetration rate of around 17% by the end of 2014. Europe’s fixed-broadband penetration is much higher compared with other regions and almost three times as high as the global average (28% compared with 10%). 2.7 1.0 0.6 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014* stnatibahni001reP Developed World Developing Note: * Estimate Source: ITU World Telecommunication /ICT Indicators database Developed World Developing Note: * Estimate Source: ITU World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators database 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014* 30 25 20 15 10 5 0 % 2728 17 % 30 25 20 15 10 5 0 14 10 8 6 3 0.4 Europe Developed TheAmericas CIS World Asia& Pacific Developing ArabStates Africa Note: * Estimate Source: ITU World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators database 27 10 6
