North America remains top by total brand value, up 13% year-on-year, driven by the improving US economy and increases to the value of some major brands following significant M&As. Asia is the fastest growing region, up 18% ($30bn). Chinese brands lead the way benefitting from an expanding customer base and government support. Middle Eastern brands grew almost as quickly, by 16% MOBILE is the current leader in the chinese market.By the end of 2014 China Mobile 4G customer base exceeded 100 million .SingTel is a pioneer in ramping up commercial 4G mobile services in Singapore
