3G Mobile Internet Goes Worldwide

For many people around the world, the mobile phone will be the only means of accessing the Internet. According to Ericsson's second Traffic and Market Report, released on 5 June 2012, 85 percent of the world's population will have internet coverage via 3G by 2017 and there will be close to nine billion mobile subscriptions, compared to six billion by the end of 2011. Machine-to-machine subscriptions will add to this figure.
