The Connected Consumer Survey 2015: mobile customer retention
Table of contents
6.Executive summary
7.Price is the key driver of churn for most age groups, but network factors (notably speed) were more important for the youngest respondents
8.Bundling fixed and mobile services does not necessarily reduce churn
9.There is a correlation between high data allowances and high NPS, but our results emphasise the importance of value, rather than just size
10.Recommendations

12.Key drivers of mobile customer churn
13.Price is the key driver of churn for most age groups, but network factors (notably speed) were more important for the youngest respondents
14.Price dominated churn decisions in Europe and the USA, but other factors came into play in Asia-Pacific and MEA
15.Operators with the best coverage have higher NPS than competitors, but where all operators have good coverage, challengers have higher NPS
16.Pricing structures and churn
17.SIM-only customers award the highest NPS, but increased churn rates suggest that competition is bringing some volatility to the segment
18.Bundling fixed and mobile services does not necessarily reduce churn, despite positive correlations among certain service combinations
19.Examining the effectiveness of fixed-mobile combinations in different countries provides positive and negative examples of the role of pricing
20.Data pricing and its impact on retention
21.Data allowance has become a more important factor than voice minutes when selecting a tariff in Europe and the USA
22.The price of data was identified as more important than that of voice and messaging in APAC and MEA, but both are low priorities in South Korea
23.There is a correlation between higher data allowance and increased NPS, but our results emphasise the importance of value, not just size
24.Another dimension of data pricing is balancing the utilisation levels of allowances and managing overage
25.Operators must balance monetising overage with increased likelihood of churn but overage policies can complement rightsizing to improve NPS
26.Mobile data speed and customer satisfaction
27.Speed was a greater factor in churn among younger people who are also more likely to use their handset to watch OTT video content
28.Customers on high-speed 4G services awarded higher NPS than 3G customers, but speed is not the only variable between 3G and 4G users
29.4G customers claim to use Wi-Fi more than 3G customers, but in general Wi-Fi usage is an indicator of concern about price and performance
30.Network coverage is also a significant driver of churn in some countries
