In India, mobile data traffic will grow 12-fold from 2015 to 2020, a compound annual growth of 63 percent. The mobile data traffic will reach 1. 7 Exabytes per month in 2020, up from 149 Petabytes per month in 2015.

In 2015, India’s Fixed-Wi-Fi was 38 percent of total IP traffic and will decrease to 34 percent of total IP traffic in 2020.

In India, IP video traffic will grow 5-fold from 2015 to 2020, a compound annual growth rate of 40 percent. Consumer IP video traffic will be 83 percent of consumer IP traffic in 2020, up from 68 percent in 2015 whereas business IP video traffic will be 66 percent of business IP traffic in 2020, up from 37 percent in 2015.
