What you need to know
The mobile network providers market has decreased slightly on last year, with an increasing number of consumers choosing SIMonly plans. This provides a cheaper and more flexible option for them as they’re able to easily change deals or providers, without being locked in for a sustained period of time. However due to the cheaper prices, the market has been negatively affected.
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Zach Emmanuel, a leading analyst in the Technology sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
People are increasingly favouring cheaper, more flexible SIM-only plans and are becoming more data-reliant. Therefore 5G could have a significant impact on mobile viewing habits as consumers get access to instant video streaming and downloading. Network providers will need to cater to bigger data allowances, although 5G is also likely to drive higher smartphone prices.
