Telecomspricing expands its portfolio with the launch of the ‘5G Tariff Bundle’ providing an insight into 5G pricing adopted across 20+ countries.


The 1st Edition of the 5G Tariff Tracker covers pricing for 20 countries and over 40 operators across the globe. Detailed information such as price in local currency and Euros, inclusive allowances, speeds and Value added and how 5G pricing compares with 4G pricing is provided in an easy-to-use format.

The Research finds that different approaches have been taken:

· Charging a premium for 5G, with some waiving the charge for some months.

· Launching a completely new set of price plans

· Other charge the same as for 4G, make 5G only available to the upper priced plans.

· Make 5G available to the prepaid market, though very few operators.

· Download speeds are as high as up to 2 Gbps, with the most common average advertised download speed now being 1,000 Mbps.

· The majority of 5G plans are still based on data consumed rather than on download speed

· Highest 5G price levels are to be found in the Middle East though also have the highest mobile data allowances.

· Out of 5G plans surveyed worldwide, the greatest proportion consist of mobile data allowances of less than 100 GB per month. The single most common allowance is 100 GB.



5G services are still at an emergent stage, with network coverage, the availability and the purchase cost of handsets acting as barriers to mass market deployment. The deployment of 5G already has been surprisingly widespread when compared with the early stage of 4G LTE.

And 5G is soon poised to enter the mainstream as more MNOs offer lower cost entry-level packages and the availability of lower-cost 5G smartphones starts to improve later in 2020. These two trends have the potential to make 5G the transformative technology of the year.
