The area of device financing and distribution has become increasingly dynamic as operators have sought to expand consumer choice and flexibility in this area, while reducing their own costs. Instalment billing and the separation of handset and service fees have provided scope for innovation and differentiation in this area. Despite the potential benefits of innovation in this area, some operators have so far appeared reticent to explore opportunities to update their approach to device distribution. Others have questioned the need to remain a key player in the device distribution market.
This report examines the impact that instalment billing has had on operator business metrics in order to identify the potential benefits and costs to MNOs. It also looks at recent developments in device financing and distribution to illustrate the options open to operators currently considering the move away from traditional subsidy models.
