Croatia adopted the Euro on 1 January 2023, so we are now showing local currency results for Croatia in EUR.

TELCO ACTUALS

The Financial KPI dataset has been fully updated with data to 3Q 2023.

We have revised our nomenclature for pay-TV metrics (see further details below).

TELCO FORECASTS

The core and business forecasts for Western Europe have been fully updated based on data to 2Q 2023. The pay-TV forecasts for Western Europe have been fully revised for France and Italy only (as well as the regional total). In addition, we have made the following changes to the pay-TV forecasts.

  • We have consolidated the metric taxonomy, retiring a number of metrics that were only present for Europe, such as pay-TV households as a measure of users.
  • We have revised the nomenclature to clarify the use of revenue-generating units (RGUs) as a measure of connections (as distinct from users).
  • We have introduced a new naming structure of many metrics, most notably replacing ‘OTT’ with ‘streaming video’. The new taxonomy is set out in the Full metrics list, in which we have included a 'before-and-after' view of the metrics available.
  • For France and Italy, we have introduced several new metrics, including:
    • streaming video RGUs (as opposed to users)
    • third-party streaming video spend – direct to customer
    • third-party streaming video spend – via operator sales channels
    • total streaming video – advertising tier
    • total streaming video – full-price tier.
  • The Western European regional totals for connections will include a mixture of streaming video users and RGUs until all countries have been re-modelled with the new taxonomy.

The business forecasts for developed Asia–Pacific (DVAP) have also been fully updated based on data to 1Q 2023, and these results have been incorporated into core forecast for developed Asia–Pacific. The global core forecasts have been refreshed to reflect all these changes.

We have discontinued the business/residential splits for pay-TV metrics, which were previously available for Europe only. We are also retiring the desktop management metrics for new forecasts (so these results are no longer available for Western Europe and developed Asia–Pacific).

NEXT UPDATE (Telco actuals and forecasts)

The next update will be in mid-January and will include European historical data to 3Q 2023 as well as core forecasts for Central and Eastern Europe and emerging Asia–Pacific (based on 2Q 2023 data).

Croatia adopted the Euro on 1 January 2023, so we are now showing local currency results for Croatia in EUR.

TELCO ACTUALS

This update includes new core historical data to 2Q 2023 for the Middle East and Africa and Latin America.

We recently enhanced our European core data coverage by introducing new metrics which clearly distinguish between retail and network subscribers for each mobile operator. We now have two metrics for both total connections and market share for European countries, as follows:

Metric name (new metrics in italics) Operator allocation
Mobile|Connections|total Network basis
Mobile|Connections|total – retail basis Retail basis
Mobile|Connections – market share|total Network basis
Mobile|Connections – market share|total– retail basis Retail basis

The total market results for both measures of connections are identical. The retail and network metrics only differ in the way that subscribers are allocated to operators:

  • Network basis: when customers subscribe to a service provided by a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO, an operator without their own network infrastructure), that customer relationship is recorded as belonging to the network operator which hosts the MVNO.
  • Retail basis: customer relationships are recorded as belonging to the retail provider, be that mobile network operator (MNO) or MVNO.

We have undertaken a remodelling exercise for all Western European mobile markets (now including Greece and Portugal) in order to show the data for the larger MVNOs individually. For Central and Eastern European countries, all MVNOs are clustered into a single entity. For non-European countries, operator subscribers and market share are reported on a network basis only.

TELCO FORECASTS

This release includes the Communication Services forecast (OTT/P2P) update for Europe. It includes updated launch dates of VoWiFi, VoLTE and Operator IP services. It also uses internal Analysys Mason consumer survey data to inform OTT (third-party app) messaging, tablet data and operator IP forecasts. The VoWiFi forecast was also remodelled.

NEXT UPDATE (Telco actuals and forecasts)

The next update will include historical data to 3Q 2023 as well as core forecasts for Europe and emerging Asia–Pacific (based on 2Q 2023 data).

This data has not been changed since the previous update on 12 September 2023. 


Update 12 September 2023

ACTUALS

This update includes new Financial KPI historical data to 2Q 2023 for all regions.

FORECASTS

The core forecasts for developed Asia–Pacific have been fully refreshed based on 1Q 2023 data. We have also revised the forecasts of SMS volumes in other non-European regions. The business, global core and person-to-person (P2P) communications services forecasts have been aligned to take account of these changes.


Update 13 July 2023

ACTUALS

Update 26 May 2023

ACTUALS

This update contains Financial KPI data for 1Q 2023 for all regions.

FORECASTS

We have made some minor revisions to the Latin America core forecast and some very small adjustments to the business forecast metrics in some regions.

EXCHANGE RATES

We have revised the exchange rate data that underpins all monetary values in the DataHub. The 2022 exchange rate figures are now based on actual numbers rather than forecasts, and all exchange rates for future years have been reforecast. We are now using 2022 as the base year for constant currencies (USD 2022 and EUR 2022). Full details of our exchange rate methodology can be found in the exchange rate download file and on-screen help text.

All forecasts have been rebased to the new currency, which will result in some metrics showing different monetary values. For most forecasts, we conduct the modelling in local currencies, so the differences will be visible only in the common currency (USD or EUR) numbers and, in particular, the regional totals (because these are necessarily shown in common currency). For the small number of forecasts that we model in common currencies (for example, IoT), the local currency values will change from 2022 onwards.

IoT forecasts

We have revised our IoT forecasts for Nigeria and a handful of other countries worldwide in the light of new data. These results are mirrored in the core and operator business services forecasts, and worldwide figures have been updated accordingly.

EXCHANGE RATES

We have revised the exchange rate data that underpins all monetary values in the DataHub. The 2021 exchange rate figures are now based on actual numbers rather than forecasts, and all exchange rates for future years have been reforecast. We are now using 2021 as the base year for constant currencies (USD 2021 and EUR 2021). Full details of our exchange rate methodology can be found in the exchange rate download file and on-screen help text.

All forecasts have been rebased to the new currency, which will result in some metrics showing different monetary values. For most forecasts, we conduct the modelling in local currencies, so the differences will be visible in the common currency numbers, and the regional totals in particular (because these are necessarily shown in common currency: EUR or USD). For the small number of forecasts that we model in common currencies (for example, IoT), the local currency values will change from 2021 onwards.

ACTUALS

This update includes core historical data to 4Q 2021 for Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe and North America, along with financial KPI data to 4Q 2021 for all regions.

We have expanded our mobile market datasets for Belgium and the Netherlands to explicitly report MVNO revenue and the number of MVNO subscribers.

FORECASTS

Fixed–mobile convergence forecasts

This update includes a new set of fixed–mobile convergence (FMC) forecasts. We have extended the footprint of these forecasts to include Canada, Norway and the USA (now a total of 19 countries).

Core forecasts

We have updated the fixed broadband elements of the core forecasts for all regions. In addition, we have added new market information to the core forecasts for Ireland, Myanmar and Nigeria. The worldwide core forecasts have been updated accordingly, along with the communications services forecasts. 

Operator business forecasts

We have completely refreshed the operator business forecasts for Latin America, and have added Chile as a fully modelled country. Furthermore, fixed broadband elements have been amended in all regions in line with the core forecasts.
