More than 75 percent of the people in the U.S. already own a mobile phone and this figure is likely to cross 80 percent shortly. Market participants will be looking to target the still un-served segments. Designing and offering next-generation mobile data services to the prepaid segment also presents a unique set of challenges.
“After examining the existing strategies in the fast-saturating market, mobile operators could offer consumer and enterprise mobile data services, converged offerings, mobile advertising and loyalty programs,” says Frost & Sullivan Strategic Analyst Vikrant Gandhi.
Mobile video advertising has been a success ever since off-deck advertising gained popularity in 2006. Location-based services such as family finder and child locator that use of global positioning system (GPS) for global system for mobile communications (GSM) expect to be introduced in 2007. Besides, the mobile payments industry continues to evolve with the emergence of facilities such as money transfers and smart card-based purchases.
The acute competition in the market drives mobile operators to be innovative in the services they offer, which is well evident from the range of prepaid plans available. Usage of wireless networks will be the primary communications channel in 2007, owing to the introduction of more innovative techniques.
“Service providers could also consider providing services to prepaid as well as credit-challenged segments, but not at the expense of revenue maximization from existing subscribers,” notes Gandhi.
