Mobile data will be the largest revenue-contributing segment in 2017 and beyond, boosted by increasing smartphone ownership and rising 4G adoption, with 5G expected to launch commercially in 2020. Going forward, operators will focus on data-centric services and investments in LTE, 5G and fiber deployments to boost broadband penetration in the country, which will also provide significant opportunities for vendors and investors in the coming years.
