Highlights from Asia-Pacific Mobile Forecasts 4Q2005
In this final issue, the Asia Pacific team illustrates three main points from Asia- Pacific Mobile Forecasts. Subscription growth will come from the usual suspects, such as China and India. However, Vietnam, Pakistan, and Indonesia will register double-digit 5-year CAGR of more than 20 percent. Low ARPS countries require innovative marketing strategies to encourage usage. Operators in the Philippines remain on the forefront for successful case studies. In developed markets, consolidation is definitely in the cards in Hong Kong and Taiwan (where churn rates are significantly higher than average for mature markets). Winners in such a consolidation trend are those who have multiple services, which extract more revenue from existing customers.
