"The total telecoms service revenue in developed Asia–Pacific will increase at a CAGR of 1.4%, largely due to upselling higher fixed and mobile access speeds."


Fixed broadband, dedicated connections and ICT services will contribute the most to telecoms fixed revenue growth in developed Asia–Pacific (DVAP). The revenue from the mobile segment will be affected by competitive pressure, but widespread 5G adoption will limit ASPU decline.

This report and associated data annex provide:

  • a 5-year forecast of more than 180 mobile and fixed KPIs for DVAP, as a whole and for seven key countries
  • an in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of mobile and fixed service, and for key countries
  • an overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, in order to highlight similarities and differences by means of a cross-country comparison
  • a summary of results and key implications for mobile and fixed operators.
