“MVNOs will double in size by 2015 to reach 186 million subscriptions. MVNAs and MVNEs will be some of the key enablers to foster growth. Retailers and “ethnic MVNOs” will continue to represent the bulk of MVNOs in the near future, but the data-only and M2M market for MVNO will emerge. ” Dario Talmesio, Senior Analyst, Informa Telecoms & Media.
This report looks at a wide range of MVNO strategies and provides a detailed analysis of MVNO markets and operators worldwide from regional and country perspectives, including MVNO subscriber forecasts for 60 countries. It examines what makes a successful MVNO, the role of MVNAs and MVNEs and how their role is evolving, as they now start to move up the value chain.
The MVNO business model has proved hugely successful in developed markets with over half of the subscribers coming from Europe, but emerging markets have remained largely immune to the MVNO hype until now. However, this is changing as Latin America and Africa emerge as potential growth markets.
The report highlights this and other emerging trends in the sector including data- only MVNOs, ethnic MVNOs, and retail. We also provide detailed analysis on the future of MVNOs from a service perspective, as well as discussing how the sector is moving towards consolidation.
