4G Commercial Strategies for Faster ROI in Asia-Pacific

However, 4G has been rapidly gaining ground across the region with the rising demand for data services. In increasing network capacity, mobile operators face challenges such as the shortage of spectrum and high cost of network deployment. The key question for operators is how to achieve their ROI objectives and staying competitive in the marketplace.
Operators in the APAC region have been using a variety of commercialization strategies including client segmentation, devices availability, appropriate pricing strategies, effective promotional campaigns to raise awareness and optimal use of various distribution networks. Operators in emerging countries like India and Malaysia are focusing on affordability of 4G services in order to accelerate adoption. On the other hand, operators in developed markets aim to provide advanced services such as M2M/IoT and other data intensive applications to boost 4G adoption
