Being a highly competitive market, mobile hybrid pricing has become a new alternative for network operators to assist with market segmentation and gain consistent revenue in the South African mobile communications market. The expansion of the middle and upper middle class, along with the tough economic conditions, has impelled subscribers to migrate to the low-priced but high-volume service hybrid segment.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (wireless.frost.com), Unpacking the Vibrant Mobile Hybrid Segment in South Africa, finds that the mobile hybrid segment is becoming prevalent in the mobile communications market in South Africa. It generates consistent revenues by enriching and differentiating product and service portfolios and allowing subscribers to control their monthly expenditures.

Middle class households prefer the hybrid plan, as it allows them to control their monthly expenditure by setting a limited spending amount. Mobile operators also benefit from the hybrid segment, as it provides them with steady revenue and promotes customer loyalty in a market that is facing subscriber saturation and declining average revenue per user (ARPU).

"Operators could tap new market opportunities for the next three to five years by adopting a focused approach to differentiating and enriching product and service portfolios," says Frost & Sullivan's Information and Communication Technologies Research Analyst Liya Xi. However, the hybrid segment could be restrained, to some extent, by the limited data bundle and long-term contracts.

Due to the rapid evolvement of technology and mobile handsets, some subscribers prefer not to be locked into a long-term contract. Furthermore, the thin data bundles are sometimes insufficient to meet the increasing mobile broadband demand. This may pose hurdles for the expansion of the mobile hybrid segment, as operators offer discounts to both pre-paid and hybrid subscribers.

"Designing an appealing mobile hybrid package is not only important to gain consistent revenues, but also to promote brand loyalty," notes Xi. "Providing more distinctive and competitive advantages in the mobile hybrid package will guarantee sound revenue growth and increase the ARPU."
