Segmentation of certain services

For the major countries
We distinguish two types of mobile services:
- Voice services refer to telephone communications.
- Mobile data services bring together mobile messaging services (text, multimedia), data and content access as well as generated traffic as charged by the mobile operator.

We account separately for:
- Data transmission services which bring together the operation of networks dedicated to data transmission based on the Frame Relay, X.25, ATM and MAN networks, IP VPN services and leased lines.
- Fixed Internet services which cover narrowband Internet access services (dial-up) and broadband or even ultra-high speed. (DSL, cable modem, FTTx…).
- For countries where fixed broadband customers were already segmented, we have now separated ultra-fast broadband subscribers by technology (FTTH/FTTB, VDSL, DOCSIS 3.0) and broadband subscribers by technology (ADSL, cable modem or HFC). DSL customers may previously have included VDSL subscribers, just as cable modem customers may have included DOCSIS 3.0. subscribers, while FTTx subscribers included only FTTH and FTTB customers.

Historical data is compiled from the following information sources:
- publications of national regulatory authorities, ministries and national statistical organisations
- operators' financial reports
- press releases.

These sources have been compared and supplemented whenever necessary by estimates based on our expertise. We have been able to make revisions ?to the figures compared to previous editions (new information available, correction of errors, scope adjustments from one country to another).

Our forecasts are based on assumptions relating to anticipated change in the penetration rates for different access modes (percentage of population) in different markets and to changes in average revenue per user.
The assumptions formulated depend on several factors:
- current level of development of the market
- potential of the market seen through the general level of economic development
- national industrial context and policy followed in the development of ICTs
- changing consumer use practices.

Concerning monetary and GDP data:
- Market data by country is presented in national currency and converted into euros (EUR) and U.S. dollars (USD). Conversion rates (average exchange rate in 2014 according to the International Monetary Fund or IMF) are specified in the tab labelled "exchange rates" and applied to the entire period.
- The past histories of national GDPs derived from the publication "World Economic Outlook of the IMF" are presented in national currency (current prices) and converted into USD.
