Southeast Asia - State Of Mobile Networks


Whilst Southeast Asia might not be as notoriously smartphone-loving as regional neighbours like South Korea, countries in the region are experiencing a rate of mobile traffic growth virtually unprecedented around the world.

In response, operators are continuing to invest in network capacity.
