Mobile data pricing, spectrum, technology and network economics research reports for industry professionals
DFMonitor-PRO is a subscription service for industry professionals who want to get one step ahead by gaining deeper understanding of 4G and 5G network economics and the key trends and drivers beneath the rapidly changing mobile data markets.

DFMonitor-PRO's metrics and research reports are compiled by Rewheel's senior management consultants that advise European mobile operators, regulatory authorities and investors on pricing, spectrum and network economics and strategic aspects of mobile data.

Our -PRO research reports and master spreadsheets by now have become valuble resources for leading tier-1 global telco groups, regulators, Big 3 management consultancies, global internet services companies.

Typical contexts where our -PRO reports and spreadsheets add signifiant value to our clients have been: pricing (e.g. unlimited), fixed-to-mobile-broadband subsitution (spectrum and network economics aspects), mergers (e.g. remedies), MVNO wholesale deals, spectrum auctions, policy (e.g. net neutrality, roaming).
