Global MVNO Forecasts to 2015

5th edition - March 2011 (Informa Telecoms and Media (Dario Talmesio))

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. For the first time, the report includes detailed forecasts by country and covers 60 of the world's key markets. In addition, it contains several detailed Case Studies covering the key players across different regions.
