Mobile Roaming Revenues to Exceed $80 Billion by 2017
Juniper Research has valued Operator revenues generated from mobile roaming at more than $80 billion by 2017, compared to over $46 billion this year.
These revenues will largely be driven by increasing data usage and a reduction in roaming charges. This equates to almost 8% of operator billed revenues by 2017.
There is an increasing number of SIMs used not just within handsets but within an M2M capacity. Operators need to encourage M2M roaming, especially within the telematics segment, via partnerships with global operators.
