DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/24kz9v/data_shared_plan) has announced the addition of the "Data Shared Plan Opportunities, Business Models and Pricing Strategies" report to their offering.
Despite being the world's most connected region by mobile subscriptions, predominantly prepaid Asia Pacific is yet to see a shift towards data propositions that allow sharing and consumption among multiple devices. The author forecasts that shared-data offerings will take Asia Pacific and Latin America by storm as operators are exploring ways to monetise on data services and encourage customers to stay with their provider.
Driving the global momentum to shared-data propositions is operators' desire to capitalise on the continuously expanding connected device ecosystem.
According to the research, the most popular shared-data plan model allows multiple secondary SIMs, suitable for use in data-only devices such as tablets and dongles, to share the inclusive data allowance of a primary SIM's service plan. Despite this being a popular pricing model across all regions, several European and North American markets also see a comeback of family plans where multiple SIMs of multiple users share a central pool of data, minutes and messages.
