Why Mobile Network Providers Now Rely Upon Data Services

Global mobile service provider revenue barely budged in the first half of 2014 (1H14), up by just 0.5 percent from the same period a year ago. Mobile data services (which includes text messaging and mobile broadband) rose again in every region in 1H14, driven by the increasing usage of smartphones. Mobile broadband services grew 26 percent year-over-year, enough to offset the decline of SMS revenue.
