New Report “GCC Tariff Benchmark Fixed & Mobile” Published by MarketPublishers.com20 Sep 2011 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Telecom operators worldwide face numerous obstacles to continued success, namely stagnating growth, heightened competition, and growing consumer sophistication. These new trends hindering the telecom operators are also starting to emerge in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, with revenue growth in the telecom sector slowing, competition rising, and consumers increasingly demanding more services and better performance at reduced prices. As these trends are still nascent in the region, GCC telecom operators have thus far implemented tactical, short-term initiatives to overcome these obstacles. Opportunity abounds for GCC operators to prepare for future challenges by adopting a comprehensive cost management plan, addressing incremental efficiencies, process reengineering, and value chain restructuring. Operators that do not implement wide-ranging plans to manage their costs run the risk of steep declines in profitability. Fortunately, GCC telecom operators have a lot of room for improvement in cost optimization.
The new research report “GCC Tariff Benchmark Fixed & Mobile” worked out by Tariff Consultancy provides extensive research and in-depth analysis of 6 incumbent fixed operators (except for ISP in Kuwait and Egypt) and all mobile network operators (15 in total) offering services in the GCC region. In order to compare rates charged in the GCC region with countries outside the region, the study incorporates prices for services in 4 other countries namely Egypt, Morocco, South Africa and the UK. A matrix including all qualitative and quantitative information for each of the fixed and mobile service providers is also included.
