Thursday 11 February 2021 | 12:43 CET | News
Data traffic in India grew 60 times over the last five years. In 2020, data traffic grew by 36 percent year-on-year, mainly due to increasing 4G data consumption as 4G subscribers surpassed 700 million with 100 million new additions during the year, according to Nokia's Mobile Broadband India Traffic Index (MBiT) 2021 on mobile broadband performance in India in 2020. 4G alone accounted for nearly 99 percent of the total data traffic consumed across the country.
