Data is now part of everybody’s life. Now, without data we find ourselves in strife. Be it because of automatic top up fees or having to recharge early, running out of data is one of the worst things most smartphone users will face! That is the reason why you see operators offering now a multitude of data bundles…
Market research forecasts more than 50% of data traffic growth per year, resulting in data consumption multiplied by 10 in the next 5 years! As for bundles, these have now become the biggest source of data revenue for you operators, data which steadily takes an increasing share of your total revenue!
But what has this shift to ‘Data bundles’ changed?
It has changed mainly how we consume data services: from few tens of megabytes to few Gigabytes. It has changed how operators sell data services as well: from ‘pay as consume’ to ‘per bundle’ scheme. Moreover, it has changed how operators bill data services: from a simple ‘price per data transaction’ to complex aggregation logic…
As a result, testing a data bundle is more complex, more points of control are required, a different approach is needed. And there is obviously an impact on billing verification!
