Journal Article


Abstract


  • With almost four billion people, Asia

    comprises about 55% of the world’s

    population and 45% of the world’s Internet

    users [1]. Internet penetration in Asia

    is estimated at almost 28% compared with the rest

    of the world at 43% [2]. The number of mobile users

    in Asia at the end of 2012 was estimated at about 3.2

    billion subscribers. Eighteen countries in Asia have

    saturated mobile markets exceeding 100% penetration,

    while Macau and Hong Kong have mobile penetration

    levels of more than 200% [3]. India and China

    account for over 60% of the telecommunications

    market in Asia which is why so

    many companies are vying to be there.
