November news round-up: the internet has gone mobile and India cashless

The month of November was an exciting one in the tech industry. For the first time ever, more internet was consumed from mobile devices than desktop. This comes as no surprise since mobile-only emerging markets are the driving force behind the digital ecosystem growth.

Governments in emerging markets are also pushing more people to go online: India’s recent demonetisation plan urges people to pay online and use less cash, something which carrier billing will also benefit from.

On Fortumo’s side, we published the first version of our carrier billing deployment tracker in November as well as a market report covering the Nordic region. For news from elsewhere in the industry, check out our monthly news summary below.
