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. Consequently, the generated outbound LTE roaming traffic reached around 54%. asia sim card
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%.
