"High data allowances appear to increase customer satisfaction and reduce churn risk, but operators have yet to fully capitalise on this effect."

This report focuses on aspects of Analysys Mason's Connected Consumer Survey that relate to the behaviour, preferences and plans of smartphone users in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. In particular, it focuses on respondents’ satisfaction with their mobile services.

This report answers the following questions.

  • How do churn levels differ between countries and operators? What factors seem to affect churn decisions? What are churners looking for in their next tariff?
  • What is the Net Promoter Score (NPS) of different operators? What seems to affect it? How do operators perform in different parts of the country and what demographics are they strong in?
  • How does data consumption correlate with customer satisfaction? How do different data pricing strategies affect customer experience and satisfaction?

Survey data coverage:

The research was conducted in August and September 2016. The survey groups were chosen to be representative of the mobile-Internet population in the region. We set quotas on age, gender, employment, and regional demographics to that effect. There was a minimum of 1000 respondents per country, and 4500 respondents in the region.
