Search Inside

Consumers own an increasing number of mobile devices. In order to monetise multi-device ownership, operators must give consumers an incentive to attach their devices to a service that meets their consumption demand. This Viewpoint assesses the market opportunities for data-sharing plans and provides case studies of operators’ shared data and multi-device sharing plans.

About this report

This report on multi-device sharing plans and data-sharing options provides:
• a market opportunities assessment for data-sharing plans based on an analysis of multi-device ownership and adoption levels of shared/family plans, connected tablets and unified service provision (based on the results of our Connected Consumer Survey 2013)
• recommendations for operators, including ways in which operators can address increasing levels of multi-device ownership and drive data usage
• an examination of operators? shared data and multi-device sharing plans in selected case studies from the USA, developed Asia–Pacific and Western Europe.

The studied tariffs are compared according to three criteria:
• Whether sharing is allowed on a variety of tariff tiers or only on top-level tariffs.

Data-sharing services: A variety of operators offer subscribers the option to extend their single-device tariff offering to a tariff that allows sharing of the monthly data allowance with one or more additional devices. This option can be available either free or at an additonal monthly charge.
Multi-device shared data plans: The same as multi-device sharing plans, but only the monthly data allowance can be shared.
