The survey’s objectives included capturing consumers’ evaluation of service attributes and expectations from mobile service providers, evaluating the level of consumer satisfaction with the various mobile service operators, measuring the level of service delivery in the mobile telephone industry and evaluating the relative performance of providers among themselves with respect to defined attributes.
The NCA has set a benchmark of 85 per cent or more for billing performance and help or enquiry services, 90 per cent for supplementary services and 75 per cent for overall quality of service.
The survey revealed that 74.7 per cent of mobile subscribers were satisfied with the services of their mobile network operators.
