Global Roaming Tariffs Examined in In-Demand Study by Tariff Consultancy

11 Jun 2013 • by Natalie Aster

Tariff Consultancy has released the latest edition based on a survey of 86 MNOs in 60 countries worldwide and sheds light on the complex pricing for Mobile Roaming worldwide.

The latest edition “Global Roaming Tariff Tracker” by Tariff Consultancy shows the impact of the EU roaming regulation on roaming tariffs within Europe, with speculation that roaming within selected regions – such as within the Benelux – will cease to exist as a result of regulatory pressure.

Key roaming trends identified in the Q1 2013 TCL Tariff Tracker include the following:

  • More MNOs are now including roaming bundles as part of a premium Pay Monthly tariff plan - particularly in Europe. 
  • There remains a huge range of pricing for Data roaming standard pricing worldwide –Data roaming pricing in the survey varies from Euro 0.43 per MB up to over Euro 21 per MB. 
  • More bundles are now offered by MNOs for Mobile Data roaming than for Voice roaming – the survey now includes over 400 Mobile Data roaming bundles offered by the MNOs but less than half the number of Voice roaming bundles. 
  • Most bundles are provided for Daily, Weekly & Monthly durations – but increasingly operators look for differentiation and launch durations of shorter than a day, 3 days as well as longer than monthly durations.

The TCL Global Roaming Tariff Tracker provides a unique insight into the changes taking place in roaming tariffs since February 2007 and has been updated every quarter since. Every quarter TCL has continued to develop the survey with roaming products from more countries and MNOs worldwide.
