Quarterly mobile connection growth in Asia Pacific crashed to a three-year low of 5.8% in Q3 2008, even though net additions figures, at 89.4m, were the second best ever seen in the region. The result left rolling annual growth down at 28.6% – the lowest level recorded since the 12 months period ending 31st December 2006 – although rolling annual net additions set a new record for the 14th successive quarter, reaching 364.5bn.
The reason for this seemingly paradoxical result was that net additions were up year on year by 10% from 81.2m, but down quarter on quarter by 10% from the record 98.8m posted in Q2 2008, the increase in the total number of mobile connections in the region in the meantime being enough to cause the effects we have seen.
