"Operators' generous voice allowances have inhibited VoIP growth so far, but competition from OTT apps such as WhatsApp is likely to increase as the voice calling user experience improves."
This report focuses on aspects of Analysys Mason's annual Connected Consumer Survey that relate to the behaviour, preferences and plans of over-the-top (OTT) communications app users in six countries in Europe, as well as South Korea and the USA.
Operators must understand how and where OTT apps are replacing operators' communications services - and when they are complementary - so that operators can make informed decisions about whether to compete or partner with OTT apps.
The research was conducted in July and August 2015. The survey groups were chosen to be demographically representative of the broader online consumer population. We set quotas on age, gender and employment status to that effect. There were a minimum of 1000 respondents per country. The total sample size was 8270 respondents.
