New data released by Syniverse shows that inter-regional 4G LTE roaming traffic from India has grown by a staggering 3,300% year-over-year. This growth was measured by analyzing global roaming traffic traversing the Syniverse platform.
India’s explosive growth in 4G roaming is supported by Syniverse’s platform, including clearing and settlement, and the IPX network, said the Company.
In addition to demonstrating that 4G is growing quickly in India, the Syniverse study also illustrated that more than 70% of the country’s outbound roaming traffic is still traversing legacy network technologies like 3G or even 2G, underscoring that there is still more work to be done.
Specifically, the draft National Digital Communications Policy 2018 aims to accelerate the country’s digital transformation by ensuring that access to high-speed connectivity is universally available. To achieve this goal, the country’s service providers must continue to focus on increasing the global LTE roaming supported by underlying technologies. These include Syniverse’s IPX network, which also will be foundational to enabling interoperability with new technologies like 5G that will connect billions more devices and “things.”
