This IDC Market Perspective presents a comparative view of the data-only tariff offerings of Saudi Arabia telecom operators in relation to offerings in other 5G-live countries — Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states and South Africa. IDC calculated the median values of the monthly plan prices, GB prices, and data usage limits for 4G, 5G, and fiber to the "x" (FTTx) data plans. The report compares these plans offered in Saudi Arabia with the combined median values of plans across the region. Each country included in this research is covered in a separate study.

"Telecom operators in Saudi Arabia are leading 5G network deployments across the region. They are making extensive investments in 5G infrastructure and launching 5G services with attractive value propositions for consumers. Nevertheless, to capitalize on their investments and improve ROI, these service providers will need to create awareness for a host of 5G-enabled use cases in the industrial sector, Smart City initiatives, and giga-scale projects." — Senior Research Analyst, Hyder Aftab, Telecom and IoT Services, IDC Saudi Arabia
