Published: Wed 31 October 2012

TCL launches a Tariff Trend Tracker subscription service which provides a snapshot of a key trend in mobile or fixed line service pricing. The first issue looks at Mobile Roaming.


TCL (Tariff Consultancy Ltd) introduces a new subscription service called the 'Tariff Trends SnapShots'. This service offers a snapshot of a topical trend in mobile or fixed telecoms pricing provided by TCL analysts.  

The service is available immediately - either as a once off purchase or for an annual subscription including 20 issues per annum.

The first Tariff Trends Snapshot issue looks at the changes in mobile roaming tariffs following the introduction of the latest EU pricing cap. The analyses reveal that for voice roaming when in the USA, 11 out of the 16 MNOs in the 4 EU countries (France, Germany, Spain and the UK)  surveyed have reduced their raoming rates over the 2-year period to 2012 and data roaming rates when in accessing the Internet when in the USA, some 9 out of the 16 MNOs have reduced their rates over the same period.

TCL believes that roaming products will increasingly start to be integrated with premium smartphone packages as a loyalty and retention device.

Later issues of the TCL Tariff Trend Tracker will examine the introduction of new tariffs in the French mobile market with the entry of Free Mobile, Developments in the Spanish mobile market (the unbundling of subsidised handsets), Pricing for new LTE services launched to-date, Pricing for the mobile youth segment.

“The introduction of the TCL Tariff Trend Tracker will provide timely snappy analysis of a key telecoms pricing issue,” says Margrit Sessions, Managing Director of TCL. “The aim will be to provide a quick and readable briefing which will not shy away from making recommendations for future pricing strategy.” She adds: "Subscribers can extract tables and charts directly into their presentation".
