For the third consecutive year: Comprehensive business benchmark including a total of 159 KPIs covering revenue, OPEX, CAPEX, TCO, productivity, traffic load and network quality – with a peer group solely consisting of network sharing joint ventures.
Due to pre-agreed confidentiality requirements, the identities of participating JVs are anonymous. But all JVs are established and operational, use active radio network sharing and are based in mature mobile markets globally.
The results demonstrate the value of the JV-specific benchmark approach: Network sharing JVs have through focus on core activities, higher freedom in selecting operation methods and attention to detail established cost and productivity levels that are elevated beyond the obvious sharing effect. Also network quality is very high even though traffic load increases when sharing.
To improve further, JVs thus need to compare with their likes – other JVs – and not to regular mobile operators.
The benchmark will run again in March 2016.
