TNS report raises concern over roaming subscriber data consumption habits

Operators need to prepare for a substantial increase in data consumption pressures from roaming subscribers according to a new report from Transaction Network Services (TNS).

The report focuses on the findings of an independent survey*, commissioned by TNS, which explores how many cell phone users continue to use their apps when roaming, whether they leave them open in the background when not using them, and if they attempt to limit their data consumption when not on their home network.

From small rural operators in the US to the largest multi-national carriers, TNS has over 500 operator customers and addresses the full needs of wireless and wireline operators in the US and globally.
