Quarterly World Review: Q3 2008

The GSMA Intelligence Quarterly World Review is now available for download for third quarter 2008:

In Q3 2008, world connections surpassed 3.8 billion, adding 160 million connections in the last quarter. This represents 57.6% market penetration and annual growth of 20.2%, down almost 2% quarter-on-quarter, indicative of the turmoil in the financial markets. In this quarterly review, we examine the key trends, market drivers and challenges for each region.

The review covers all regions (Africa, Americas, Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Middle East and USA & Canada) with a three-page analysis on each including:

  • The latest aggregated data tables
  • Topical discussion on an operator-, group- and market-level basis
  • Key trends, market drivers and challenges for each region
