    Data usage vs ARPU, in 36 countries

    In a report released today by tefficient, mobile data usage and revenues are compared amongst 36 countries for the year 2017.

    July 10 2018

    A prerequisite for continued data usage growth is that the total revenue per gigabyte is low. This is not the case in Greece, Canada and Belgium. The total revenue per gigabyte there is roughly 20 times higher than in Finland and more than 35 times higher than in India.
    Find Canada in the following 3 graphs.

    Highest ARPU, lowest usage

    The State of Canadian Wireless in One Chart
    No One Has Carriers That Generate More Revenue With Less Usage
    Michael Geist, July 10

    Tefficient has released a new report on the global wireless market that makes it clear that Canada is a global outlier (or leader if you are a telecom executive). Simply put, no one has carriers that generate more revenue with less usage per SIM than Canada.

    Data Usage vs ARPU


    It is difficult to overstate how much the lack of wireless competitiveness is holding back the Canadian market. With the CRTC refusing to take action and carriers continuing to increase fees (particularly on overage fees that generate more than a billion in revenue per year), it falls to Innovation, Science and Economic Development Minister Navdeep Bains to recognize that longstanding failed Canadian wireless policies must change.

    SAF in 2018

    Remember the system access fee? Some are still paying it even as class action lawsuit looms
    CBC Jul 15 2018

    Thought that annoying system access fee was a thing of the past? It turns out the saga isn't over. Some people are still paying the controversial wireless phone charge, even as a class action lawsuit targeting the fee makes its way to trial.

    For years, phone companies — including the big three: Bell, Rogers and Telus, charged the monthly fee — typically $6.95 — as an extra cost on top of the price of a regular cellular plan. The telcos were also named in a class action lawsuit certified in 2007.

    The lawsuit alleges Rogers, Bell and Telus plus some smaller players misled customers into thinking the system access fee (SAF) was a tax levied by the federal government, when in fact most of it was flowing into the companies' coffers.

    "The whole process was designed to give the impression of a government fee"
    ...
    Despite the lawsuit, Bell, Rogers and Telus haven't entirely eliminated the fee. Harry Sivalingam in Toronto recently discovered this when he checked out his father's wireless bill. To his surprise, his dad, 70-year-old Shanmugam, is still being charged a monthly $6.95 SAF by his provider, Telus.

    "I was shocked," said Sivalingam. "Why and how this is possible?"

    Uncanny, how consistent RBT pricing is.

    In perfect harmony

    Unreported elsewhere. In the month of September Koodo, Rogers and Fido joined Bell and Virgin in hiking data overage to $100 per GB.

    Telus charges $100/GB with premeditated stealth, waiting for the mandated $50 data pause to double their rate. Not so friendly.

    Another snapshot of Canadian pricing.

    For an affordable iPhone XR 64GB:

    Rogers - just $99 on a $115/1GB plan (+2GB promo)
    Bell - $99.99, $115/1GB (+2GB promo)
    Telus - $100, $115/1GB (+2GB promo)

    Freedom - $0, $90/10GB ($60 plan, $30 tab)

    --
    the $115 RBT plans are local calling, not Canada-wide

    via iPhone in Canada
