Ericsson – Technology and service provider to telecom operators across the globe has predicted that by 216, there will be 5 billion mobile broadband subscribers across the world and mobile data traffic will grow 10 folds by 2016. According to the report, mobile broadband global subscription grew by 60 percent in one year and is expected to touch 900 million by 2011 to almost 5 billion by 2016, mainly driven by video. Report also unveils that mobile traffic data will double this year mainly due to the surge in the sale of smartphones, tablets and other electronics gadgets. It’s been expected that by the end of 2011 total mobile traffic for smartphones will tripled. Interestingly, by 2016, near about 60 percent of mobile traffic will be generated by the people living over less than 1 percent of the Earth’s total land area.
