At the end of 2017, Dutch consumers consumed more than 100 petabytes via mobile




Mobile data usage in the last three months of 2017 exceeded 100 petabytes for the first time. The milestone is mainly due to the growth of consumption via 4g, the consumption decreases via 3g.

Consumption of the quarterly period at the end of 2017 is 100 per month, double that of 2014 and is roughly equal to the total consumption of 2015. The total consumption for the whole of 2017 was 325 petabytes.

The data consumption via 4g increased from 80 petabytes in the third quarter of 2017 to 89 petabytes. Especially from the second quarter of 2017, data consumption increased strongly by 4g, as Tele2 and T-Mobile started to offer their unlimited bundles.

The 3g traffic contributed a little more than 14 petabytes to the total of 100 petabytes. The data consumption via 3g did decrease for the third consecutive quarter. The figures are shown in the ACM ‘s Telecommonitor .

The quarters Q3 and Q4 of 2017 are not included in the view
