2017 was a year of change in the global telecom services market, compared to previous years.
While, in the United States, mobile revenue is losing steam but fixed internet services are still enjoying tremendous growth, over in Europe the mobile market is finally back on an upwards swing.
Growth is also back on the table in Latin America, while Asia-Pacific is still home to massive short-term growth potential, and the Africa-Middle East region is expected to enjoy strong and steady growth in the medium term for a mobile services market that already serves 1.6 billion subscribers.
