External data monetisation: CSPs should cautiously invest in new service offerings to increase revenue

Justin van der Lande Principal Analyst

"CSPs' interest in launching their own external monetisation services is growing, primarily due to increased mobile data usage, falling margins and changing subscriber attitudes to data sharing."

Until recently, communications service providers (CSPs) have been reluctant to launch services that sell insights into their customer data, but now may be the right time for them to invest in external monetisation service offerings. This market proposition has been made more compelling because of technology changes and the availability of low-cost storage, as well as market expectations from purchasers for accurate data supplied in real-time.
