The report, dubbed Mobile Data Offload & Onload: Wi-Fi, Small Cell & Network Strategies 2015-2019, estimates that only 41% of all mobile data traffic will be carried over cellular networks by the same year, with the rest being offloaded to Wi-Fi networks.
Further, video is seen as a driving factor for global mobile data usage, and already accounts 60% of global IP traffic and, in some developed markets is expected to exceed 70% in 2-3 years.

  • Wi-Fi is increasingly becoming an integral part of operator networks, with it being used not just for data but also for calls.
  • Connected cars and other telematics will significantly boost onloaded M2M traffic in the coming years.
  • North America and Western Europe will have the highest offload factor throughout through the next four years.
