Mobile Phone Service Provider Customer Satisfaction
Source: Roy Morgan Single Source (July 2010 - June 2011). Total main user of at least one mobile phone and gave provider (n=14,497). “% Satisfied” refers to the proportion of all customers who are “Very” or “Fairly” satisfied with their overall service with that mobile phone service provider (on a five point scale). Total industry figure excludes those who ‘can’t say’ their provider. NOTE: Satisfaction score is provided by the respondent for the brand that the respondent has a relationship with.
Andrew Braun, Director Mobile, Internet and Technology, Roy Morgan Research, says:
“Additional Roy Morgan Research data shows that the overall number of customers who have switched from one provider to another has declined since December 2010 (with only 12% having switched in the six months to June 2011, compared to 13.4% who switched in the six months to December 2010).
“The ongoing industry trends of stable customer satisfaction and a decline in overall churn will be welcome news to a number of players in the industry.”
