New Radar report: Mobile roaming in a post-Covid world
2 years ago
New Radar series
GSMA Intelligence and Mobile World Live partnered to bring a new Radar series to the industry, focusing on the impact of new technologies in the mobile and wider TMT sectors. The series includes a full in-depth report and live events, to offer our partners the opportunity to position themselves as thought-leaders.
Our September edition will focus on the changing business models and marketplace for mobile roaming. Roaming revenues were down 10-20% in 2020 as global travel volumes declined due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but indicators suggest a gradual recovery in 2021. This, coupled with underlying technology shifts such as 2G/3G network sunsets and the growth of eSIM, explains why setting up global connectivity agreements is a priority for many businesses now more than ever.
With this context, our Radar report will explore several key questions:
What does a staggered relaxation of international travel rules in 2021/2022 mean for the roaming outlook in different regions?
How can operators best set up and manage roaming agreements given the sunsetting of 2G and 3G networks with the parallel rise in LTE and 5G in the customer base?
If the model is moving towards a consolidated scale play (so-called ‘hubbing’), does this imply a 5G first mover advantage?
What are the trade-offs involved in eSIM use and how can telco operators make best use of it for roaming services?
How can roaming models manage IoT connection footprints across multiple countries?
In partnership with our sponsor, GSMA Intelligence and Mobile World Live will produce and promote an in-depth report and a series of live events. An exclusive opportunity for a sponsor to benefit from the combined strength of the GSMA’s media and research arms to reach global senior audiences:
