2021 5G Pricing Report: An Analysis of 46 MNOs 5G Product Launches -

·3-min read

DUBLIN, December 02, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "2021 Tariff Trend Report: Latest Development in 5G Pricing - An Analysis of 46 MNOs 5G Product Launches" report has been added to's offering.

This report provides an analysis of the latest 5G launches by 46 network operators over the past nine months.

In addition to providing a profile for each of the new offerings, it also offers an analysis of the 46 MNO product launches plus how each operator positions its new 5G offering versus its 4G offering, in terms of price, allowances, and speed.

Comparisons included in this report cover data allowances, pricing, and download speeds allowing us to easily identify which operator offers the best deal.

This new report covering 5G launches by 46 operators during the last nine-month reveals that 5G is becoming a mass market product.

The key 5G trends identified include:

  • The introduction of 5G as a mass market product: Although the majority of MNOs use 5G as a premium product, selected MNOs are now introducing smaller bundles of mobile data allowances (as low as 1 GB) as an entry level product. In Singapore, Singtel provides 5G as standard for its XO plans, except for the entry level product (where 5G is an SGD $15 extra cost option). In the Philippines, Globe Telecom has introduced a 5G Pre Pay product.

  • The emergence of 5G Broadband as an alternative to fixed Broadband: Selected MNOs worldwide are now launching their own FWA (Fixed Wireless Access) product with various download speeds - ranging from 50 Mbps upwards - as an alternative to fixed line broadband services typically connecting up to 7 devices. New FWA services have been introduced over the period by Claro (Peru), Telenor (Sweden) & Ooredoo (Maldives).

  • The integration of 5G and 4G service plans: Typically, 5G plans are being integrated with existing 4G plans with 5G plans being offered as a premium plan above 4G LTE speeds. But the number of plans being offered is growing, as MNOs introduce 5G at lower price points - with O2 Telefonica (Germany) for example introducing 5G for plans of Euro €39.99 per month and above.

  • Some MNOs are introducing specific 5G related plans: With the launch of 5G selected MNOs are introducing their own plans. For example, Orange (France) has introduced separate 5G plans with a premium mobile data allowance of 70 GB per month and above. But the majority of MNOs are integrating 5G access with their existing 4G LTE plans.

  • 5G as an Add On option is also available: Selected MNOs are introducing an add on option to existing clients - with T-Mobile (Netherlands) charging an additional Euro €2 per month for SIM-Only plans and Vodafone (New Zealand) proposing to charge an additional NZD $10 per month (from the end of June 2021) for 5G access.
