"Operators in the Middle East and North Africa need to regain consumers' trust, or they risk missing out on emerging opportunities that depend on users' sensitive data."
Over-the-top (OTT) VoIP penetration in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is among the highest in the world. Take-up of these services is driven by growing smartphone penetration and relatively high prices for voice and messaging services in the region, particularly for international usage. Penetration is particularly high among foreign nationals.
The research was conducted in July and August 2015. The survey groups were chosen to be representative of the mobile-Internet-using population in the region. We set quotas on age, gender and employment status to that effect. There were a minimum of 750 respondents per country, and 3750 respondents in the region.
