Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. I do most of my investing through a Stocks and Shares ISA. Due to my personal tax situation, I believe it’s better to use this tax-efficient wrapper, despite its limitations.However, that’s not going to be applicable for all investors. A traditional dealing account or even wealth management service might be more suitable for those with less experience. With that being the case, here are the five FTSE 250 UK shares I’d buy right now. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…FTSE 250 sharesCMC Markets provides financial services for investors around the world. The company specialises in trading derivatives such as spread betting and contracts for difference. These products can be incredibly volatile, but that’s good news for CMC. The business makes a profit on every trade its customers place. That means volatility is good for business.As such, as market volatility has exploded over the past 12 months, so has good profitability. That’s why I buy the stock, although CMC isn’t without risks. Previously, the organisation has had to book large losses when customers haven’t been able to come up with cash to cover losses. There’s no guarantee this won’t happen again. A significant loss may even jeopardise the firm’s financial position.I’d also buy iron ore producer Ferrexpo. The price of iron ore has jumped over the past 12 months, which should benefit the group’s bottom line. However, this is a high-risk investment.The company’s operations are located in Ukraine and, in the past, it’s been dogged by corporate governance issues. One of the firm’s banks also collapsed, wiping out a portion of its cash balance. Still, I’d buy the stock because it has a track record of producing large dividends for investors when profits surge. I think that potential reward is worth the risks of investing. Stocks and Shares ISA investments International estate agency Savills is another FTSE 250 business I’d buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA. Property is one of the world’s largest asset classes, and this group has a strong reputation globally for facilitating deals. Unfortunately, its reputation doesn’t make it immune to the property market’s cyclical nature. So, Savills is almost sure to encounter periods of falling profit. This could have a significant impact on the company’s share price. Fund management can be a lucrative business, that’s why I’d buy UK shares such as Jupiter Fund Management. I like this company because it’s always paid a generous dividend. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 5.8%.However, Jupiter’s impressive dividend track record doesn’t guarantee the payout will always be there for investors. If profit margins should fall, the organisation may have to cut its distribution. If the firm’s funds underperform the market, it may spark a customer exodus, putting pressure on group profit. The final FTSE 250 firm I’d buy is PZ Cussons. The maker of soaps such as Imperial Leather has reported a significant increase in sales this year. This profit growth should support its dividend yield, which currently stands at 2.6%. Still, this payout is by no means guaranteed. The company had to cut its dividend by 30% in 2020 due to falling profits, which could happen again in the future.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Hargreaves Lansdown investors are buying Synairgen shares. Should I buy too?

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Image source: Getty Images Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! I’ve been bullish on Synairgen (LSE: SNG) shares for sometime. But the stock has been volatile. So far in 2021 the share price is up only 5% but during the past 12 months it has increased by over 280%. Of course, past performance isn’t an indication of future returns.Even Hargreaves Lansdown investors have turned positive on Synairgen shares. The company was one of the top 10 most purchased stocks last week on the platform.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The AIM-listed firm recently came out with an announcement, which I thought was very encouraging. I’m still bullish on the stock and would buy it in my portfolio.The announcementSo, last week, Synairgen released a statement saying that its in vitro studies showed that its treatment is effective against key Covid-19 variants. I’m not surprised the stock jumped on this news.As a quick reminder, the company developed SNG001, which is a treatment for Covid-19. It’s worth adding here that this is not a vaccine. This is used to treat those who are already infected with the coronavirus. So far, the clinical trials of SNG001 have been successful.But what does this new announcement mean? Well, it’s certainly positive news for Synairgen shares.Studies were conducted at labs in the Netherlands, confirming that SNG001 “potently reduced”  the coronavirus to “undetectable levels” in cells that were infected with the “Wuhan-like” strain as well as the UK/Kent and South African variants.My viewI’ve previously commented that I think Synairgen shares have bags of potential. And I think this announcement demonstrates it.Clearly the emerging Covid-19 variants are of huge concern. They pose a threat to the global economy returning to any kind of normality. While the current vaccines are proving to be effective, I don’t think this is enough. They may not work against future coronavirus variants. It’s great to see that the data confirms that “SNG001 is a broad-spectrum antiviral product”.What I like about Synairgen is that SNG001 could play a key role in combating seasonal variants and other respiratory diseases. I also agree with CEO Richard Marsden’s comments that it’s pleasing “to see initiatives being put in place to accelerate and support development of antiviral therapeutics as a backstop for patients who are admitted to hospital”.It means that the company’s products could be at the forefront of treating Covid-19. In my view, it also places Synairgen on the radar as a potential takeover target by a larger competitor once the pandemic is over. The company will start dosing patients at trial sites in India as part of its SNG001 Phase III study imminently.RisksSyanirgen shares come with a lot of risk. I only have to look at the stock price chart to see that investors are in for a volatile ride. I’d only invest what I could afford to lose.The company hasn’t generated any revenue yet and so it’s loss-making. I expect this to be the case for sometime because Synairgen is still conducting clinical trials for SNG001. There’s no guarantee this will be successful, so investors may need to brace themselves.But I’m aware of the risks involved with Synairgen shares. I think this announcement is positive news and could push the stock higher. Hargreaves Lansdown investors are buying Synairgen shares. Should I buy too? I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

The Big Pro12 Interview: Can it keep pace with the Premiership and Top 14?

first_imgTo find out what’s in the latest issue of Rugby World po.st/RWFeb16 Warrior army: Glasgow became the first side to win the Pro12 last year LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Pro12 is in its infancy compared to the Aviva Premiership and Top 14, so how is it progressing? We spoke to its Managing Director Martin Anayi and Chairman Gerald Daviescenter_img With the Aviva Premiership and Top 14 growing ever more powerful, RW spoke to Pro12 Managing Director Martin Anayi and Pro12 Chairman Gerald Davies about the challenges ahead and reasons for optimism…RW: We spoke to Lions, Six Nations and Pro12 Chief Executive John Feehan a year ago and he intimated more ‘support’ would be given to the Pro12. Has that happened?Martin Anayi: Yes in a word. I was made Managing Director of the Pro12 in October. John (Feehan) identified that he couldn’t devote enough time to what is probably the most time-intensive property – there are 135 games! John and I work very closely together – we actually sit in the same office. There is more money being spent by the board to develop a property we believe has not yet reached its potential.Does the Pro12 have to self-generate its own revenue independently of the commercially successful Six Nations and Lions?MA: Yes, they’re all separate rugby properties. Our primary remit is to promote the Pro12 semi-finals and final. It’s identical to the job the Aviva Premiership have. Our other remit is to negotiate sponsorship and broadcast deals.Gerald Davies: We felt the time had come for the Pro12 to be standalone entity. We’ve had our difficulties over the years but we’ve reached a settled period. We had a terrific season last year and it’s time we branched out. We have a team of seven here at the Pro12 and it’s growing.The Top 14 seems to be dominating in Europe and the Aviva Premiership is showing up well this year. Is that a concern?MA: All we can do is try our best to combat them. Teams like Ulster have grown exponentially. Leinster and Munster have had hugely successful periods. If you look at the history, the Pro12 has won six European Cups, which is the same as the Aviva Premiership and only two less than the Top 14 in the last 20 years, so we’re not doing too bad. Toulon have dominated in recent years and our challenge remains to give the sides the resources to compete in Europe.Stung: Leinster were heavily beaten by Wasps in the Champions CupWith lucrative broadcast deals and marquee signings coming regularly in the Top 14 and Aviva Premiership it doesn’t seem to be a level playing field in Europe. Is that fair?GD: Let’s look at where we’ve come from. The Pro12 hasn’t had an easy passage. It’s been very difficult, even on a basic level. French and English leagues retained the same clubs as they made the transition from amateur to professional rugby, whereas for us, it’s a totally new concept. We must be given time to settle down. The civil war between the WRU and the Regions went on for two years. It was a very unsettling, awkward time, which affected the television rights and sponsorship deals. It created so much uncertainty. Companies weren’t going to invest in something where no one was sure of the future. Now we have people on board to move forward. There’s a certainty about the competition and we feel optimistic.MA: My personal opinion is it’s far too soon to make those conclusions. It’s a natural dip. Remember, Irish teams dominated between 2006 and 2012, winning five tournaments. Going forward, our relationship with the unions is key. They have their own challenges but as you’ve seen with the World Cup, they’ve never been so buoyant. Over the next 12 or 24 months, they’ve said they’ll support us with an integrated commercial and marketing plan. The stability at the WRU has already made a difference. Scott Williams and Rhys Webb are all staying in Wales and Jonathan Davies is coming back home. In Ireland, Sean O’Brien has signed a deal to stay. We’ve not been as proactive as we could have been but that’s changing.Class act: Jonathan Davies will finish his French leave and head back to the ScarletsMA: Even during difficult times we made some big strides. Sky Sports came on board. Guinness came on board. Glasgow became Scotland’s first winners with some exciting young Scots. This season we’ve seen Connacht as the story and that needs championing.Has the World Cup hindered your progress in the first half of the season?MA: It’s an interesting dilemma. We had 107 players at the World Cup, the greatest concentration of internationals players in any of the leagues. The Celtic Test players returned later because they were knocked out later than England. It affected the first round of the Champions Cup and had a knock-on effect. It’s too soon to see if it’s a longer-term problem.GD: That’s a good point. The Pro12 encompasses four different nations with lots of international players, over 150 I believe. That gives variety, taste, feel and flavour for the competition.Delayed start: All three Celtic countries lasted a week longer than EnglandWhen you look at the English and French leagues, what are they doing well?MA: The Premiership has simply professionalised rugby, while in the Top 14, for example, if you go to Clermont, you won’t find a better crowd atmosphere in rugby. They’ve created a tribalism. The Pro12 has anomalies; the support in Ulster is incredible. In fact for a long-time, Ireland was seen as the best model because they were doing so well in the European Cup, that’s why there was such agitation for change.What is the current state with Sky Sports after a four-year deal was signed in May 2013?MA: The deal is an interesting one. Our primary broadcaster is Sky but we also have some regional deals with BBC Alba in Scotland and Northern Ireland, BBC Wales and S4C, TG4 (Ireland) and RAI in Italy. It gives you a network of broadcasters. Whilst it’s not the same cash as the Aviva is getting from BT Sport, or the Top 14 with Canal+, our viewership figures are higher. Our job is to progress the sports in those countries while giving them the funds to make them competitive in Europe.What sort of viewing figures do you pull in?MA: A Pro12 round pulls in about 500,000 viewers. For the Pro12 final, it was 379,000 – if Sky get over 200,000 viewers, they are delighted. We have a strong relationship with Sky and they’re happy with what we’re giving them but in the future maybe we need more quality, less quantity. We’re showing 130 games live and while we don’t want to reduce value, we want to improve the production qualities and make sure every time you watch the game you know it’s Pro12 product. At the moment, you probably don’t. We want the media to cover the great stories. We need to shout about it more. We sit down with our broadcasters and we ask ‘how can we make this more appealing’. It is a good position to be in.Scotland seem to be having a renaissance at both at club and country level, how important is that to the health of the Pro12? MA: Scotland is a good focal point for us. It’s the best of the young talent Scottish academy system. They’ve seen what happens in Ireland, but alongside stars like Finn Russell and Stuart Hogg, they can also attract the likes of Taquele Naiyaravoro and Leone Nakarawa, one of best ball-handling forwards in the world.GD: The good thing about Glasgow’s win was that they were the best footballing side. The tendency is to say, if you’re a good looking side, you’re a loser but in fact Glasgow proved those two things can go together. That’s very important to emphasise. Edinburgh are going very well this year too.Gunning for success: Edinburgh have forced themselves into the Pro12 top 4With Turkish Airlines following Heineken as a Champions Cup sponsors, are you looking at getting more than one title sponsor?MA: No. At the moment, broadcast money makes up 72 per cent of our revenue stream. Even though sponsorship only makes up 10 to 15 per cent of your revenue, that is what the brand sits alongside – for us the Guinness Pro12. The best thing about the Guinness deal is the right brand. It makes sense. Having a company like Diageo sponsoring us is a massive stamp of approval. It ties in with our heritage.What steps are taking to raise the Pro12’s profile?MA: We have the best production house in rugby with Sky Rugby and we need to tap into that in a more meaningful way. Elsewhere, we have to have better engagement on our social and digital channels. We have 69,000-odd likes on Facebook, which should be way higher. We can deliver a huge upturn in a connection with the fans, especially in Wales. Before Christmas, I watched the Cardiff Blues versus Connacht game and The Arms Park had less than 10,000 crowd, which we should be higher. We have to take advantage of having one-team cities, Cardiff, Belfast, Dublin, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ulster. They’re big conurbations to tap into.Allen key: The Welsh derbies during Christmas were very well attended. Credit Huw EvansGD: Look at Exeter and Worcester in the Aviva Premiership, they’re not huge places but they punch above their weight in terms of crowds. The English clubs have brought tradition with them. We are trying to create a tradition with the provinces and regions.MA: Judgement Day happening at the Millennium, which we hope will beat last year’s record attendance of 52,000. The Aviva was sold out for Leinster v Munster at Christmas and the 1872 Cup set another record of over 23,642 at Murrayfield on a day when it outsold football in Edinburgh. In Italy the Italian derbies were up 14 per cent. These are the big eventers so we need to keep pushing.Do you envisage a future where the league will be fully meritocratic with regards to the top seven teams qualifying, rather than guaranteeing every country a place?MA: We need to take things one-step at a time. The single most important change to date was the qualification criteria change last year and it made a huge difference. We’ll go into February or March and the competition will be white-hot. That’s maybe more a question for the EPCR.GD: Stability is the watchword. People need to know what is happening. At this stage, we don’t want too much chopping and changing.Perennial strugglers: Treviso watch on as Stade Francais’ Hugo Bonneval streaks awayThere has been talk of London Scottish and London Welsh angling to join the Pro12 at the expense of the Italian sides. Would you consider it, or even consider expanding the competition to a Pro14, much like Super Rugby?MA: If we’re talking about that in the future so be it but at the moment, we believe in those two teams. The FIR funds them. It’s only this year they’ve been able to sign players on three-year deals because they weren’t sure about the future. I’ve visited Italy where I felt real passion for the game. Zebre is Parma and Benetton is Treviso. They are real rugby clubs with genuine heritage. While they don’t win often, they’re competitive. The Benetton Family have put a lot of money into the club they don’t want to see it fail.Provincial rugby in Ireland has been an undoubted success, but in Wales, where it’s the national sport, growth has been slower. Is that the market with the richest potential?GD: There is huge ambition on all our parts to improve things but having come through the recent civil war, we need to consolidate what we’ve got. We need to improve the spectacle.MA: I played at London Welsh. I know what rugby means to the Welsh but in recent years, they’ve not had a professional team other than the Ospreys competing at the business end of the season. We need to try and tell the story a lot better and we can do that with BBC Wales and S4C. Over the next two years I can see the Welsh regional game taking huge steps forward.Shining light: The Ospreys have been the most consistent and successful Welsh regionPlayers are being pushed more and more, how fundamental is player welfare to your modus operandi?MA: One of the first things I did in post was call for a meeting about HIA (head injury assessment), not sponsorship or broadcast deals. I was talking about what we were going to do as a competition to implement this injury assessment protocol. Player welfare is at the heart of what we’re doing. The Unions need healthy players, playing well and playing the right amount of game-time.GD: If you don’t look after your players, you haven’t got a game. I remember saying years ago you can’t treat the players as pieces of meat. They are people and we have to respect that.MA: It’s probably our point of difference for the future. We can’t go head-to-head with a 20 million Euro budget for players but we can go head-to-head on things like; are we treating the players right? Yes. Can we offer you the simple route to playing for your country? Yes. Can we offer you an environment where you can compete and succeed in Europe? Yes. If you sign a huge cheque, your allegiance is to the person paying you. We need to find a way to allow players to play rugby in the countries they want to.last_img read more

Kevin the Tipster – England vs France Quarter Final

first_imgThursday Oct 6, 2011 Kevin the Tipster – England vs France Quarter Final This weekend we’ll find out what the semi final lineup will be and might get a better idea of what is to be expected in the final, and perhaps even make a wise bet on the winner. Today though we’re looking at England vs France. Kevin the Tipster, the predicting sheep, has a 88% accuracy record so far in the tournament. Today he has a crack at the England vs France game, a match that by all means is difficult to call.On one hand England look to be favourites based on France’s inconsistency and questionable selections. On the other hand, it is France after all. They could be brilliant on the day, and certainly have the players to beat England.Losses to New Zealand and then Tonga might say otherwise though, and we’re yet to see a trademark magical performance from them. They’ve not been a stand out side by any means, but if they click on Saturday, will be difficult for England to cope with.For the neutral, it’s possibly the least apetising game of the weekend but we may be in for a surprise if France come to play. Imanol Harinordoquy has already said that the players have only played to half of their potential, so they’ll be looking to improve on that and impress come kick off.You can follow Kevin’s tips and place some bets with our friends at Paddy Power nowADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO If you can get your head around it, these… 47 WEEKS AGO You’ve never seen any Rugby World Cup drop… 49 WEEKS AGO TOP 10: Rugby World Cup 2015 was filled with… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Savoy Ulus / Autoban

first_img 2014 Architects: Autoban Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  photographs:  Sergio GhettiPhotographs:  Sergio GhettiSave this picture!© Sergio GhettiText description provided by the architects. Developed by Çarmıklı-Saruhan coorporation, Savoy Ulus is a residential complex that consists of various types of apartments all designed to satisfy different types of living. With its modern architectural style, as well as exquisite services and facilities, the project breathes new life to the upscale Ulus area, a hilltop district of Istanbul that is home to many apartment complexes built back in the 80s and 90s.Save this picture!Floor PlanAt the centre of the residential complex is the Savoy Ulus Club House – a joint-use sports and entertainment complex. The interior of the Club House – consisting of a lounge area, café and multimedia room, swimming pool, spa rooms, fitness and cardio areas – is designed by Autoban.Save this picture!© Sergio GhettiThe elevation of the site is the main determining factor of the architecture of the building and it’s unique geometry, which eventually becomes part of the landscape. Here, Autoban has created an interior shell that is totally in tune with the architecture. In fact, the building’s unique geometry has determined all the forms and materials that Autoban chose to use in this particular project. The result is a myriad of textures and patterns (radial forms) that mimic the geometry of the building.Save this picture!© Sergio GhettiAutoban has created an interior shell at parapet level, which distinctively separates itself from the architectural contours of the building by a lighting channel, and becomes a stand-alone structure of its own. Its distance from the architectural shell of the building also makes room for hiding the lighting as well as other mechanical and technical systems, and therefore becomes a functional solution for the interior. The said interior shell is made of wood (material changes at the pool and fitness area, and becomes marble in two different shades) to contrast with the concrete structure, and add warmth to the space. It is designed at parapet level to create a rather enclosed space of human scale.Save this picture!© Sergio GhettiAt the lounge area, while signature Autoban furniture become main elements of the interior, the transparent library at the centre also becomes the centre of attraction. With its floor-to-ceiling glass walls, the library unit is basically a transparent box, and the outcome of Autoban’s architectural approach to create a-shell-within-a-shell, a-space-within-a-space. The library unit also suggests mobility, by standing on its own but being part of the main interior, just like the overall interior shell does.Save this picture!© Sergio GhettiProject gallerySee allShow lessInfographic: ArchDaily Building of the Year Awards 2015InfographicsThe Barrancas House / EZEQUIELFARCA arquitectura y diseñoSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:İstanbul, TurkeyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Investigative reporter held arbitrarily in northeastern city

first_img News Help by sharing this information KazakhstanEurope – Central Asia Follow the news on Kazakhstan Reporters prevented from covering Kazakh parliamentary elections RSF_en KazakhstanEurope – Central Asia Regional newspaper editor harassed after investigating real estate scandal Receive email alerts to go further Reporters Without Borders condemns investigative reporter Yaroslav Golyshkin’s arbitrary detention for the past month in a prison in the northeastern city of Pavlodar and calls on the judicial system to guarantee his right to due process.Everything indicates that the regional authorities are trying to make him the scapegoat for a scandal allegedly involving Pavlodar regional governor Kanat Bozumbayev’s son.Arrested by the National Security Committee (KNB) on 14 May, Golyshkin is being held on blackmail and extortion charges brought by the governor and is currently subject to a pre-trial detention order valid until 16 July.Golyshkin was investigating a rape that allegedly took place in the governor’s residence on the night of 19 February. The regional prosecutor’s office conducted a criminal investigation into the rape that was closed on 16 April after an out-of-court settlement between the victim and perpetrator.Pavlodar had been abuzz with rumours about the rape since late February but the authorities refused to provide any information to the local media, which tried to establish the facts on their own.Golyshkin, who has done well-researched stories on corruption and criminal cases in the past, managed to contact the young victim and film her account of the assault. But he decided not publish the video, partly because he did not want cause her problems and partly because he wanted to get additional evidence.The authorities nonetheless knew he was investigating the case and, in mid-April, he was summoned for questioning by the KNB and learned that the governor had accused him of blackmail on the basis of the video, which reportedly implicated his son.Subjected to repeated interrogations sessions without being charged, Golyshkin surrendered all copies of the video to the authorities. According to his lawyer, he was finally arrested when he refused to make a false statement clearing the governor’s son of any blame.“Golyshkin has been in prison for the past month but no one has been charged for the rape he was investigating,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“The many inconsistencies and contradictions surrounding this case give the impression that trumped-up charges have been brought against Golyshkin and that he is just a scapegoat. We urge the authorities to free him at once and to transfer the case to a different jurisdiction.”Golyshkin’s lawyer, Dmitry Kuryachenko, was himself detained for four hours in early June for trying to give Golyshkin a letter from his mother.The rape victim and a girl-friend are currently being held by the KNB in what the authorities call “judicial protection.” But this is disputed by her family, who are being denied any contact with her. Internet access to most articles about the case is blocked within hours of their being posted online.Renowned for his professionalism, Golyshkin writes stories that are often critical of the local authorities for Versya, a local newspaper. He was physically attacked in April 2006 after reporting the abduction of a member of the financial police who had been investigating organized crime.Kazakhstan is ranked 160th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. All of the leading independent national newspapers were closed in 2012 and all attempts to create new ones have been quickly suppressed. A handful of independent regional newspapers struggle to survive.Sign the petition in support of Golyshkin launched by Kazakh NGO “Legal Media Centre” (in Russian) center_img June 13, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Investigative reporter held arbitrarily in northeastern city News Kazakh reporter accuses police of attacking her News Organisation January 15, 2021 Find out more News February 5, 2021 Find out more October 30, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Global 5G Tariff Report Bundle 2021 – Includes 5G Pricing for 40 Countries and…

The 4th edition of the 5G Tariff Tracker covers pricing for 40 countries and over 91 operators across the globe. Detailed information such as price in local currency and Euros, inclusive allowances, speeds, Value-added, and how 5G pricing compares with 4G pricing is provided in an easy-to-use format. Additionally, there is an analysis provided in PowerPoint – 28 slides – comparing the new services launched and provide analysis across all offerings. The Research finds that different approaches have been taken: Charging a premium for 5G, with some waiving the charge for some months.Launching a completely new set of price plans.Other charge the same as for 4G, make 5G only available to the upper-priced plans.Make 5G available to the prepaid market, though very few operators.Download speeds are as high as up to 2 Gbps, with the most common average advertised download speed now being 1,000 Mbps.The majority of 5G plans are still based on data consumed rather than on download speed.The highest 5G price levels are to be found in the Middle East though also have the highest mobile data allowances.MVNOs and sub-brand start to offer 5G to their client base. 5G services are still at an emergent stage, with network coverage, the availability and the purchase cost of handsets acting as barriers to mass-market deployment. The deployment of 5G already has been surprisingly widespread when compared with the early stage of 4G LTE. In 2021, 5G is soon poised to enter the mainstream as more MNOs offer lower-cost entry-level packages and the availability of lower-cost 5G smartphones starts to improve later in 2020. These two trends have the potential to make 5G the transformative technology of the year.
