UK voice in decline but SMS stays strong in the face of OTT competition

UK voice in decline but SMS stays strong in the face of OTT competition | Propositions | Scoop.it

Ofcom found, with minutes of use across both fixed and mobile networks dropping for the first time to 240 billion from 254 billion in 2010.

 

Superfast broadband services (delivered by BT and Virgin Media, and defined by Ofcom as providing headline speeds of 30Mbits/s or more) typically command a price premium of between £5 and £10/month, Ofcom said.

 

UK mobile users sent 151 billion SMS text messages in 2011, an increase of 17.3 per cent year on year. While SMS was once more popular among prepaid users than postpaid, there was a greater increase in usage in 2011 from consumers on contract tariffs. This is partly explained by the shift in favour of postpay contracts for smartphones and – Ofcom suggested – the greater ease with which smartphone users are able to send text messages.

 

Vodafone UK saw its year-on-year SMS traffic growth rate increase from 28 per cent in 3Q10 to 55 per cent in 3Q11, while O2 UK saw its year-on-year SMS traffic growth rate increase from 18 per cent in 3Q10 to 47 per cent in 3Q11.
