Report Summary:

OECD Mobile Voice and Data Price Benchmarking Q2 2019 update:

Note: The service has now changed its name from OECD Mobile Voice Price Benchmarking to OECD Mobile Voice and Data Price Benchmarking.

The Q2 2019 update of the OECD Mobile and Data Voice Price Benchmarking service is now available for download. For high residential user (making 300 calls a month totalling just over 577 minutes, and with 5GB mobile data requirement and 225 text messages), the My Prepaid Epic Value tariff from Optus, which includes 5GB data, is the overall cheapest offer, across the 74 providers analysed, at USD PPP 9.73/month. The Scoubidou Mini, with 5GB data, from POST in Luxembourg is only slightly more expensive, however, at USD PPP 9.84. Rogers of Canada is the most expensive, at USD PPP 83.14 with an unlimited talk and text offer, with 6 GB of shareable data. The OECD average for this basket (based on the cheapest offer per country) is USD PPP 32.24.


Lithuania, as a new OECD member is now included in the benchmarking system, with operators Telia and Tele2 featured.

A new switch has been included in the system, to allow users to include or exclude additional non-OECD providers. Within the standard version this refers to Colombia, which is not an OECD country, but which features in the system.

The May 2019 update for Mobile Voice and Data service incorporates the new OECD 2017 baskets. The 2017 baskets are shown in the table below, reflecting a much broader range of usage profiles than the 2010 baskets, and introducing unlimited voice and SMS into selected baskets, as well as much higher data requirements.

The 2010 baskets are still available within the system, however, along with the custom facility. In addition to the inclusion of the new baskets, it is now possible to view the results in a wider range of currencies.

Additional operators in selected countries (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, USA) are available on request as part of the OECD Mobile Voice and Data Price Benchmarking Premium Service.

Historical pricing for the OECD countries over several years is also available. Strategy Analytics also produces mobile voice and data analysis on specific geographical regions, including Latin America, Eastern Europe Africa. Please contact us for more details.

Strategy Analytics additionally produces benchmarking services for fixed voice, and fixed and mobile broadband, as well as bundled telecoms services and Pay TV.
