The Asia-Pacific region has seen a threefold increase in LTE roaming traffic in 2017, according to the latest figures of BICS. At the beginning of 2018, the top destination for outgoing roamers from Asia-Pacific using LTE services was Europe. The generated outbound LTE roaming traffic reached around 54%.

The fast increase of European LTE roaming traffic was due mostly to the “Roam Like At Home” regulation announced by the European Union on wholesale roaming charges. In consequence, tourists and business travelers visiting Asia from Europe accounted for the highest number of inbound roamers reaching 57%.

However, other countries in the Asia-Pacific region are witnessing an accelerated migration to 4G, such as Australia, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines and India.

The GSMA forecasts that mobile data growth will be the main driver of future revenues and investments in the region.

Asia Prices for Mobile data (excl. Near East)

Asia (excl. Near East)

Asian countries make up half of the top 20 cheapest in the world. India tops the list, with the average price of one gigabit (1GB) of mobile data $0.26, while the average price of 1GB is also less than a dollar in Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Myanmar and Bangladesh.

At the other end of the table it may be surprising to see such a technologically advanced nation as South Korea ($15.12) with mobile data prices among the most expensive in the world. Large economies Japan and China are also among the most expensive in Asia.
