[ABI]: Data Revenues will Exceed 40% by 2014

A recent report by Ying Kang Tan (pictured), research associate and Jake Saunders, VP and practice director, core forecasting, ABI Research, concludes that "Global mobile data service revenue, made up of mobile internet and messaging revenue, will rise by 21.4% between 2012 and 2014 to represent 40.4% of the US$1 trillion mobile customers will be spending on their mobile phone services .. North America will be the first region to see mobile data service revenue eclipse voice revenue in 2016".

“By offering unlimited voice calls and texts, while making data the only component in a bundled plan with positive marginal costs to consumers, wireless operators as AT&T and Verizon help to prop up voice and messaging, making positive revenue contributions in the short to medium-term. Rich Communication Services (RCS) and voice and messaging APIs are a key part of their strategy of making carrier-based calls and messaging relevant to their customers”.
