EU Mobile Benchmark 2013

Created: Jan 07, 2014

The EU Benchmark report compares and analyses over 2600 mobile packages across eleven European countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and UK).

A matrix was built based on ranges of monthly minutes and MBs offered. SMS has been excluded, as the majority of plans already offered (near) unlimited SMS. To account for more than just the headline cost of minutes and megabytes a total cost of ownership (TCO) approach has been used, which amongst others includes promotions and the cost of handsets.

All MNOs, second brands where relevant and two MVNOs who acquired spectrum were included. Data was collected during July and August in 2013 from the providers' websites. The team has assumed an 'average' consumer who is looking for a post-paid plan with either a handset in three categories or alternatively for a SIM-only plan.

The report is accompanied for corporate users by the excel covering all the packages used in the analysis with the following details: name provider, name plan, type of plan, contract duration, which handset included, monthly price, promotional price, duration of promotion, calculated TCO in EUR and EUR PPP, set-up costs, cost of handset, number of minutes, SMS and MBs included.
