'Roaming Revenues Will Reach Over US $66 Billion in 2016' Says Latest Visiongain Report


LONDON, July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


visiongain's latest report examines key areas within the mobile roaming sector. This timely report is entitled Global Mobile Roaming : Operator Strategies, Opportunities and Challenges in the 3G and LTE Era. Visiongain's latest research shows that roaming revenues will reach over US $66 Billion in 2016. To make the most of this opportunity, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) must prepare themselves to meet the new challenges and opportunities that are shaping the roaming landscape, particularly with the advent of Long Term Evolution (LTE).

 2011 marks the year that LTE services are being rolled out around the globe.  Visiongain believes that LTE will have a transformative effect on the roaming sector. How can additional revenues be gained from LTE roaming services? MNOs need to have the knowledge of LTE roaming opportunities and revenues up to 2016, when the LTE market will enter into a rapid growth stage.  

This visiongain report offers LTE roaming revenue forecast from 2011-2016 with figures broken down into regions, segments and service types.  MNOs, investors and affiliates can position themselves favourably by having a view of the market as it stands now, and how it will look in the near future.  To help the reader capitalise in this growth sector, the report analyst describes the right strategies to embark upon, whilst framing  the forecasts and projections within every sector of the market. Readers of the report will also discover the current roaming legislation, new business models and the key drivers and restraint of this sector.

This new visiongain report analyses the existing roaming market as European MNOs once again cut roaming tariffs in line with EU regulations from 1 July 2011. The enterprise roaming segment has long provided a reliable price inelastic revenue stream but this stream can be widened to include the mass market and increase revenues in an increasingly saturated market. International regulatory bodies are taking action with regards to roaming costs, and now is the time to capitalise with smart and effective pricing strategies.  This report offers a comprehensive view of key roaming operators from around the globe and their roaming offerings.

Operators need to deal swiftly with data pricing and bill shock, to ensure subscribers utilise roaming services in increasing numbers. This report provides crucial data and forecasts for any current or potential member of the LTE and roaming ecosystems.
