Giulio Sinibaldi Analyst, Research

"Data usage constraints are the highest barrier to VoIP adoption; operators can monetise the unmet VoIP demand while managing the transition from native voice to OTT services."

This report focuses on aspects of Analysys Mason's Connected Consumer Survey that relate to the behaviour, preferences and plans of smartphone users in emerging Asia–Pacific. In particular, it focuses on respondents' usage of over-the-top (OTT) communications and paid-for online video services.
