Research and Markets: UK Mobile Pricing Database Q3 2012 - Understand How the Market is Developing and How Prices are Trending


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "UK Mobile Pricing Database Q3 2012" report to their offering.

Mobile markets in Europe are evolving and the pricing of products is the key lever which determines the success of operators within the market, whether that be measured through market share or profitability. Over recent years we have seen the emergence of smartphones and data enabled networks which have brought additional dimensions to price and further products to sell. Operators can no longer deliberate on just the pricing of voice, but must also consider access to internet via mobile, tablet and laptop. Other dimensions in the pricing conundrum include length of contract, payment type (pay monthly or pre-pay), sim-only plans vs plans with inclusive devices, discounts for multiple products

This excel database captures all the key pricing of consumer offers for the major players in the UK mobile market (similar products are also available for France, Germany, Italy and Spain). The database is updated on a quarterly basis, giving users who continue to purchase a view of the movements in price over time. The database covers the pre-pay, pay monthly and mobile broadband segments, giving the current voice and data pricing portfolios targeting these segments. A summary table gives the key pricing developments since the last quarter
