MobileTrends Charging  Report Q2/2012

Since the release of our last Allot MobileTrends Charging Report in November 2011, we have seen the introduction of intelligent Value-based service plans across 3G networks become more widespread. Application-based plans, multidevice plans, time-shifting and parental control plans are now offered by more and more operators. Unlimited data plans are fast becoming a thing of the past. In addition, with 49 commercial LTE networks globally, LTE pricing schemes are taking shape. Notwithstanding the large capacity available on LTE networks, operators have embraced Value-based pricing. The percentage of operators offering Value-based plans is the same across 3G and LTE networks. We expect to see more Value-based pricing innovation available to LTE subscribers as the market grows.
