International mobile switching and number porting analysis

Reference: Analysis, 2018

Capturing and summarising how the mobile switching and number porting processes are implemented in ten countries.

Capturing and presenting the mobile switching and porting volume trends – per country and/or per operator.

Example from Spain (public data)

Analysing how the stipulated process (and the way operators have implemented it in practice) affect these trends. Developing KPIs allowing countries to be compared. Identifying best practice.

Identifying the triggers for switching and porting – and the elasticity between factors like gross adds, churn, numbers ported and net adds. Using international examples to predict what a change in the switching and porting process might mean for another country. Continue reading International mobile switching and number porting analysis

Are Europe’s most pronounced fixed wireless operators taking half a step back?

American carriers and uncarriers are embracing fixed wireless as one of the first use cases that 5G will solve.

New! Mobile data usage and revenue for 115 operators

Tefficient’s 20th public analysis on the development and drivers of mobile data follows on our country-focused analysis published in July.

In our latest analysis we have ranked 115 operators based on:

  • Average data usage per SIM
  • Total data traffic
  • Revenue per gigabyte

The data usage per SIM grew for all operators. And it grew quickly. But what happened to ARPU? Could operators monetise the data usage growth?

Our Christmas tree graph visualises those that delivered on “more for more” – and those that are just followed the “more for less” stream.
