Asia Pacific will be the second fastest growing region for 5G subscriptions,
with 10 percent of all subscriptions being 5G in 2022. From 2016 to 2022,

reach 6.8 billion, with more than 95 percent of the subscriptions registered
on WCDMA/HSPA, LTE and 5G networks.

Ulf Ewaldsson, Chief Strategy and Technology Officer, Ericsson, says: "Almost
90 percent of smartphone subscriptions are on 3G and 4G networks today and
standardized 5G networks are expected to be available in 2020. We are already
seeing a great interest among operators in launching pre-standard 5G
networks. 5G will accelerate the digital transformation in many industries,
enabling new use cases in areas such as IoT, automation, transport and big

The latestEricsson Mobility Reportalso forecasts that in 2022, there will be
8.9 billion mobile subscriptions, of which 90 percent will be for mobile
broadband. At this point in time, there will be 6.1 billion unique

As of Q3 2016, 84 million new mobile subscriptions were added during the
quarter to reach a total of 7.5 billion, growing at around 3 percent
year-on-year. India grew the most in terms of net additions during the
quarter (+15 million), followed by China (+14 million), Indonesia (+6
million), Myanmar (+4 million) and the Philippines (+4 million). Mobile
broadband subscriptions are growing by around 25 percent year-on-year,
increasing by approximately 190 million in Q3 2016 alone. The total number of
mobile broadband subscriptions is now around 4.1 billion.

Mobile data traffic continues to grow, driven both by increased smartphone
subscriptions and a continued increase in average data volume per
subscription, fueled primarily by more viewing of video content. In Q3 2016,
data traffic grew around 10 percent quarter-on-quarter and 50 percent

Further highlights from the Ericsson Mobility Report include:

Mobile video traffic is increasingly dominant:
Mobile video traffic is forecast to grow by around 50 percent annually through
2022 to account for nearly 75 percent of all mobile data traffic. Social
networking is the second biggest data traffic type after video, forecast to
grow by 39 percent annually over the coming six years.

Live streaming joins social media:
Consumers are increasingly using live video streaming apps to interact with
friends, family and followers. Around one in five smartphone users in the US
express an interest in live video broadcasting, with twice as many smartphone
users in high growth markets like India, Indonesia, Brazil and Oman who are
interested in such apps.

IoT in focus:
Around 29 billion connected devices are forecast by 2022, of which around 18
billion will be related to IoT. Included in the latest edition of the
Ericsson Mobility Report is a deeper look into IoT, with three feature
articles with different perspectives on IoT and its transformational
potential. Two articles are co-written with operators that have built IoT
solutions around their core assets, creating additional business value. The
third article explores the cellular networks' capabilities to support a
realistic massive IoT use case scenario.
