For mobile network operators, retailers have become a key focus point in their interaction with customers. Customers commonly have specific needs, so requiring more personal service, and their use of social networking to contact stores as well as review feedback from other customers on services and hardware makes a positive interaction with them all the more necessary. In general terms there has been higher customer satisfaction since the TCP Code was introduced in 2012.

Retail revenue has grown only slightly in recent years, partly attributed to lower consumer spend during a lengthy period of economic uncertainty. Nevertheless, customers continue to upgrade mobile devices frequently, often within an 18 to 24 month cycle determined by the contracts with their providers. The greater choice of smartphones and tablets, as well as their decreasing cost, has also provided an additional impetus in the market. In terms of accessibility, the broader sophistication of larger screened phones and phablets, as well as improved mobile-friendly website and online payment systems, is fast propelling mobile devices as a key platform for e-commerce. By mid-2015 about a third of all e-commerce transactions were made via mobile devices.
