Key Smartphone Mobile Data Pricing Trends in Europe - 2012 Report Analyses Smartphone Mobile Data Pricing of 41 MNOs

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2vqqcb/key_smartphone) has announced the addition of the "Key Smartphone Mobile Data Pricing Trends in Europe" report to their offering.

The 1 GB or above monthly Mobile Data allowance now accounts for over half of Smartphone Post Pay contracts offered in 10 European markets from the TCL survey.

New Mobile Data allowances with the Smartphone are being used as a core bundled product in Europe, with monthly Smartphone Mobile Data allowances increasing over time as more integrated tariffs are introduced.


TCL (Tariff Consultancy Ltd) in the new report Key Smartphone Mobile Data Pricing Trends in Europe has identified a rapid increase in Mobile Data allowances which has become the standard offering. The 1 GB or above monthly Mobile Data allowance now accounts for over half of Smartphone Post Pay contracts offered in 10 European markets from the TCL survey.

The TCL report analyses Smartphone Mobile Data pricing of 41 MNOs across 10 key European markets (including France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK) for both Pre Pay & Post Pay services, and examines the trends in pricing from 2010 to 2013.

Mobile Data allowances are being bundled with the Smartphone and are a relatively new service with MNOs now offering an integrated tariff with Mobile Data as the core component.

Mobile Data is being offered as a core service, with monthly data allowances offered from 1 GB up to 10 GB. The most common Data bundle is the 1 GB allowance, but in markets such as Ireland Mobile Data allowances as high as 5GB per month are provided as standard (for the iPhone).

Additionally MNOs continue to migrate their Pre Pay customers to Post Pay Smartphone bundles. There is also growth in the provision of 30 Day contracts - as in France - where web-based deals offer a minimum contract term with higher Data allowances since Free Mobile entered the French market.
