Globally, operators are striving to develop new revenue streams, increase margins and ARPS, retain existing customers and reduce churn. Multiplay bundle services, especially quadruple-play combining traditional telecom services such as fixed voice, fixed broadband, pay-TV and mobile services, is one of the key strategies being adopted by operators in order to reach those goals. Countries in emerging regions are still highly focused on attracting customers to multiplay bundles through aggressive pricing discounts. On the other hand, countries in developed regions such as North America, Western Europe and developed APAC, are focusing on developing value-added services that can integrate with their multiplay offers aiming to provide unique experiences to customers. Value-added services include traditional OTT-video functionalities such as multiscreen, catch-up TV, video-on-demand (VoD), and emerging services such as smart living and connected-home solutions.
- Globally, multiplay services reached 583.7m households in 2015, with Asia Pacific representing 44.8% of the total. With a 2015-2020 CAGR of 5.3%, multiplay services will increase to 757.1m households by year-end 2020.
- The monthly average household spend significantly increased through the adoption of multiplay services, which results in increased ARPS to operators. The average monthly household spend increases by 85.3% from a double-play to a quad-play bundle.
- The migration and roll-out of FTTH/B is well underway in Latin America and emerging APAC, which will facilitate operators in the development of bundled offers built around their broadband proposition.
- Selected operators, mainly from developed markets, have already perceived that they need to integrate value-added services within their multiplay offers in order to enhance the customer experience and increase loyalty.
