Shifting sands: UK mobile market in Q3 2022
7 December 2022
Mobile service revenue growth rose to +6%—its highest level in over a decade as price increases fed through and roaming picked up.
However, there were early signs of a worsening economic environment: handset revenues and contract volumes were subdued and churn popped up for most operators.
Growth may soften from here as the roaming boost subsides and economic conditions worsen, but price rises of up to 15% in the spring could provide more resilience if fully implemented.
