"Hardcore gamers in developed Asia–Pacific spent 21% more than the market average on telecoms services in 2021."


This consumer survey report highlights that digital gaming is important to operators because gaming is popular, high-frequency and generates considerable revenue. 57% of paying gamers in South Korea used subscription services in 2021 compared to 38% in Australia and New Zealand. An increase in gamers’ use of subscription payment models makes operator gaming propositions more appealing.

This report provides:

  • new consumer survey insights derived from 3000 respondents in Australia, New Zealand and South Korea
  • detailed information about consumers’ gaming habits and how this relates to their use of telecoms services
  • a segmentation of users’ gaming behaviour and an analysis of how that affects their telecoms and media spending behaviour, such as churn and willingness to pay for OTT video services
  • a detailed appendix with country- and operator-level data related to gaming.

Survey data coverage

We set quotas on age, gender and geographical spread to that effect. There were at least 1000 respondents per country.
