Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2009 and has not been updated since. In 2009 there were around 4 billion mobile subscribers worldwide, with some of the more mature markets having over 100% penetration. The mobile industry is pinning its hopes on the emerging markets sustaining subscriber growth levels as the industry attempts to weather the economic downturn. So far this is holding true with both India and China reporting positive subscriber growth in late 2008. This report provides global subscriber statistics, together with regional breakdowns and forecasts of future growth. Detailed information on Prepaid and 3G can be found in separate reports.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
