Network Traffic

The Network Traffic programme brings together our wireless and fixed traffic forecasts and adds new analysis to further understanding of the key developments, drivers and barriers to growth.

Our focus will be twofold: expanding the granularity of the existing forecasts to keep abreast of emerging trends, and deepening an understanding of the forces – both internal and external to the telecoms industry – that shape network traffic.


  • Basic data on traffic per network type/generation, per user and per device
  • Traffic density (Gbps per km2) by geo-type and location (including transport)
  • Traffic distribution by tier of fixed and mobile user
  • Concurrency ratios on fixed and mobile shared access networks
  • Relationship between mobile traffic and capacity/cost
  • Relationship between mobile traffic and pricing, elasticity and yield
