    Mobile churn and buying behaviour of Australian consumers

    ,
    Venture Insights performs an annual consumer survey on mobile service and handset purchases across Australia. It asks questions around willingness to pay, intentions to switch service providers and handsets, and key factors responsible for this switching. We also ask which service provider the respondents are switching to, and thus determine the service providers that will gain or lose from this churn. Our latest survey was conducted in March 2020 for Australia, and the key findings have been presented here. In this report, the term MVNO includes resellers such as Belong, Boost, Lebara and Virgin Mobile that are subsidiaries of MNOs or owned by them.
