Mobile data use to double to 46GB/month by 2027: Study

 Delhi, India: Nokia, a telecom network provider, has predicted that in five years, the average data consumption per user will more than double to 46GB per month as the high-speed 5G network begins to expand its reach in India. The Nokia MBiT Index report indicates that data consumption has increased rapidly in India, particularly since the entry of Reliance Jio, which in September 2016 brought about an internet revolution by introducing cheap tariffs. According to the report, between 2018 and 2022, the average monthly data traffic per user increased by 19%, reaching 19. 5GB per month as of the end of last year, compared to 9GB. 7GB in 2018.

According to the report, while 4G was the most popular technology until the end of 2022, 5G-driven applications and services will lead the next growth phase. According to Nokia, the switch from 4G to 5G has already begun and will accelerate in the coming years. As 350 million 2G customers upgrade simultaneously, there will also be upgrades to 4G. 31 million new data subscribers joined the 2G to 4G migration in 2022, and that number is expected to rise this year.

According to the report, India will also see a boom in adoption of private networks, which are likely to contribute as much as 40% to overall 5G revenues. The report also delved into the issue of private wireless networks for businesses that have been permitted under 5G. Nokia stated that by 2027, there will be over 2,000 sites supporting such installations and that Indian businesses will likely spend approximately $240 million to implement such private networks. The majority of private wireless network deployment in India will be in the manufacturing, utilities, transportation, and healthcare sectors, Nokia stated.
