How people aged 60+ behave in the Tele2 network

A lot of interesting data on preferred smartphones, volumes of downloaded data and other "habits" of subscribers of the older age group. I hope this is the last material about this for a long time, I myself am already tired of writing on this topic. But the material is good, and you can consider the topic of age a little farfetched, what's the difference?

Our PR services love what they now call "news story". It seems like a sign of good taste: we are not writing just to brag, but we have His Majesty an informational occasion! Yes, to health, no one objects. If you definitely need an informational occasion, then grab it and hammer it together, he will not be offended. It's like in the days of socialism, it was necessary to remember the decisions of the last party congress, even if the congress was on the topic in no way from the word "in general." At all times and in all varieties of the press, there were certain markers. Okay, let's not get distracted.

“An analysis of the category of users over 60 showed that their number in the Tele2 network increased by 5% in January-August 2020. More and more customers are switching from basic devices to smartphones: in August, their share increased to 61.2% - an increase of 9 p.p. y-o-y, while since January - 5 p.p. This is an impressive figure against the backdrop of overall penetration smartphones in the Tele2 network, which for August 2020 amounted to 75%. The growth of smartphone users among the older generation was facilitated, among other things, by the acceleration of digitalization against the backdrop of the pandemic and Tele2 social projects to train older people in Internet technologies.

Well, yes, how could one not screw in “by the way” about Tele2 social projects for educating the elderly, a holy cause! In fact, it should be obvious even to the most stubborn dreamer that many choose smartphones not on their own and not from a good life. No, I willingly believe in “acceleration of digitalization against the backdrop of a pandemic”, but still, the main driver of “smartphoneization” of grandparents is their children and grandchildren who want a new toy for themselves, and a grandmother without a smartphone is a great reason to give her her old smartphone. And let her suffer and master the abstruse technique to the delight of statistics collectors. The second reason is the squalor of simple “dialers”, something more or less attractive and with a large screen is already in smartphone format. Finally, the main reason is money. Try to make the owner of a simple dialer pay for the Internet, huh? If this Internet is in the phone, he does not need it in FIG. Conversely, try to avoid paying for mobile internet if you have a smartphone. You can dodge, but the task is not trivial, and with many models of smartphones, the problem does not have a reliable and long-term solution at all, both smartphone manufacturers and mobile operators took care of this.

“The share of active users of data services still makes up one third of the total number of customers over 60 years old. However, due to the fact that users have tried the digital lifestyle, this indicator is growing - in January-August, the share of active data-users increased by almost 6 p.p. to 35%. At the same time, in August 2020, their share increased by 8.4 percentage points year-on-year.”

Here is a beautiful illustration of what I wrote above. Yes, users 60+ years old have "tasted the digital lifestyle." And then they were caught up and once again forced to “taste”. And where are you going? Try to answer honestly at least to yourself: when was the last time you chose and bought a device specifically for your grandparents? It happens, I do not argue, but it happens rarely. I was genuinely surprised that with all this, the share of active data users in this age category was only 35%. Or the question arises of how Tele2 considers "active" users. Are all those who pay decent money for accidentally pressing a button considered "passive" internet users?

“The average number of gigabytes downloaded per month for such subscribers exceeds 10 GB per client. This is an indicator comparable to the amount of traffic consumed by thirty-year-olds. So, at the end of 2019, representatives of generation Y (born in 1985-2002) downloaded 11.4 GB per month on the Tele2 network. Baby Boomers (born 1944-1963) are breaking records for internet traffic growth, with the average number of gigabytes downloaded per person per year doubling, according to a 2019 Tele2 study.

A paragraph is just a song. We read: "The average number of gigabytes downloaded per month from such subscribers exceeds 10 GB per client." It's in the press release that was sent, which is "What's the matter. sorry, it fell into the mail, then it was gone. Although, it seems, web clients allow you to almost delete what was sent from the recipient's web client. I don’t know, I haven’t tried it, but my dear The Bat! periodically sends me notifications about an attempt to withdraw an email sent to me. Shhzzzz, I'll let them poke around in my inbox! For the sake of order, we check the text of the same press release here and read: At the same time, in the Moscow region, the average monthly consumption of active users of data transmission in this age category exceeds 9 GB. So exceeds 9 or 10 GB, huh? Am I the last person in the world to receive mail in a personal mailbox? I would not emphasize the discrepancy in the figures if it were not for a slight discomfort: it turns out that some figures are written to us simply “from the bullshit” or for some other reasons? And can the published statistics be trusted? Probably, you can trust when the numbers in the statistics are interconnected and, if you treat them freely, you can inadvertently destroy the entire structure. And when so, a separate number in a press release that does not affect anything, they will write whatever they want.

And about ". the average number of gigabytes downloaded per person per year has doubled,” even commenting on laziness has already been discussed many times. Age has nothing to do with it, it's all tricks to artificially increase traffic volumes. And again, here, most likely, the vulnerability of older people works, and not at all their phenomenal growth of interest in the virtual world of the Internet.

“The most popular devices among subscribers over 60 years old are inexpensive smartphones costing 6-7 thousand rubles. Honor 7S, Samsung A10, Samsung Galaxy J1 were among the top devices in demand by this category of users.

The digitalization of this audience is facilitated not only by a large selection of inexpensive and high-quality smartphones, but also by the availability of mobile Internet. It is curious that more than half of subscribers over 60 use package tariffs. Since January, their share has increased by more than 5 percentage points - from 55% to 60% in August, in comparison year-on-year growth amounted to almost 10 percentage points.

I'm not an expert on smartphone models, the shaitan arba works - and thank the Lord. I try not to touch anything and go into the settings like a toilet, only when needed. If someone is interested in my opinion, then, perhaps, I would recommend Samsung. The smartphones of this manufacturer seem to me more friendly to the user, and the interface is more logical. But this is pure taste, I do not insist on my opinion. Nadys cursed with bad words at the interface “with a claim” of one device, they did it “beautifully” for me, about “convenient” - no, they didn’t hear. I don’t write the name on purpose, otherwise they will suddenly be offended. But about the availability of mobile Internet and package tariffs, I want to growl and bite. First, candy-children give an elderly dad / grandfather a smartphone, it’s good if they take care to set it up at least as a first approximation and pick up the tariff. And then - turn around, grandfather / grandmother, as best you can, we have completed our task and our old smartphone has been shaken off for you. Turning off the mobile Internet through the operator is aerobatics both for the grandson and (often) for the operator's employee. Wide-open eyes, in which the silent question slowly cools down: “What, it was possible like that?!”.

“The top territories with the largest number of subscribers over 60 years old are the Urals, Siberia and the Chernozem region. When analyzing the share of smartphone owners, Moscow was expected to take the first place, where this figure was 88%. The second place is occupied by Baikal and the Far East with a result of 65%, the third position is occupied by the Urals with a share of 63%. The North-West, where the penetration of smartphones among mature users is 60%, was in fourth place on the list - along with Siberia and the Volga macro-region.

Here are 88% of smartphone owners with subscribers aged 60+ in Moscow clearly confirm the scheme of migration of devices from children / grandchildren to grandparents that I described. And look at the numbers yourself: 88% in Moscow and then a sharp subsidence to the level of 60-65% in different regions. I am absolutely not ready to believe in the unexpectedly high demands of a Moscow pensioner compared to a pensioner from Samara, they should not have such different needs for mobile Internet.

“The most popular devices among subscribers over 60 years old are inexpensive smartphones costing 6-7 thousand rubles. Honor 7S, Samsung A10, Samsung Galaxy J1 were among the top devices in demand by this category of users.

The digitalization of this audience is facilitated not only by a large selection of inexpensive and high-quality smartphones, but also by the availability of mobile Internet. It is curious that more than half of subscribers over 60 use package tariffs. Since January, their share has increased by more than 5 percentage points - from 55% to 60% in August, in comparison year-on-year growth amounted to almost 10 percentage points.

I'm not an expert on smartphone models, the shaitan arba works - and thank the Lord. I try not to touch anything and go into the settings like a toilet, only when needed. If someone is interested in my opinion, then, perhaps, I would recommend Samsung. The smartphones of this manufacturer seem to me more friendly to the user, and the interface is more logical. But this is already taste in its purest form, I do not insist on my opinion Mhreteab Yemane. Nadys cursed with bad words at the interface “with a claim” of one device, they did it “beautifully” for me, about “convenient” - no, they didn’t hear. I don’t write the name on purpose, otherwise they will suddenly be offended.But about the availability of mobile Internet and package tariffs, I want to growl and bite. First, candy-children give an elderly dad / grandfather a smartphone, it’s good if they take care to set it up at least as a first approximation and pick up the tariff. And then - turn around, grandfather / grandmother, as best you can, we have completed our task and our old smartphone has been shaken off for you. Turning off the mobile Internet through the operator is aerobatics both for the grandson and (often) for the operator's employee. Wide-open eyes, in which the silent question slowly cools down: “What, it was possible like that?!”.

“The top territories with the largest number of subscribers over 60 years old are the Urals, Siberia and the Chernozem region. When analyzing the share of smartphone owners, Moscow was expected to take the first place, where this figure was 88%. The second place is occupied by Baikal and the Far East with a result of 65%, the third position is occupied by the Urals with a share of 63%. The North-West, where the penetration of smartphones among mature users is 60%, was in fourth place on the list - along with Siberia and the Volga macro-region.

Here are 88% of smartphone owners with subscribers aged 60+ in Moscow clearly confirm the scheme of migration of devices from children / grandchildren to grandparents that I described. And look at the numbers yourself: 88% in Moscow and then a sharp subsidence to the level of 60-65% in different regions. I am absolutely not ready to believe in the unexpectedly high demands of a Moscow pensioner compared to a pensioner from Samara, they should not have such different needs for mobile Internet.
