With the increasing affordability, the uptake of data services is growing among mobile users in both developed and emerging countries. Furthermore, the consumption of data services has increased significantly among existing data services users.

Worldwide mobile data traffic stood at 231.1 Petabytes per month at end-2010. With the rising number of web-enabled mobile devices, cloud computing, alternate access networks such as Wi-Fi, and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) making huge infrastructural investments to improve the quality of networks, mobile data traffic is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 91.2 percent between 2010 and 2015 to reach 5,904.1 Petabytes per month by end-2015.

With the emergence of mobile data services, a valuable new revenue stream has arisen for operators. The growing importance of data services has prompted MNOs to design strategies to maximize the revenue-earning potential of these services. However, mobile data revenue is not growing as fast as mobile data traffic. Worldwide mobile data revenue stood at USD 290.3 billion in 2010 and is expected to grow at a comparatively lower CAGR of 13.2 percent between 2010 and 2015.
