World Mobile Market:By Subscribers, Data Revenue & Service Revenue

The growth in the global telecom market can be looked at from two angles : in terms of subscribers and in terms of revenues. Whereas the number of subscribers are massive in emerging economies like India and China, the revenues do not translate commensurately.
