In the release of the mobile data and market data report, mobile data has increased significantly in recent years and is mainly driven by Video. By 2018, total data increased 12 times than in the past five years. However, the market share of roaming data is less than 0.5% of total mobile data. The difference between roaming users and local users is also obvious. Some countries, roaming data is only 10% of the local users, and in some tourism destinations, roaming user may be approximately equal to the local users, which means the most of users felt inconvenient when roaming abroad.
