One figure: So simple to use, so much experience behind

Universally understood: Answering to the need of telecom operators, investors & analysts


More than ever before, efficiency is the answer to profitability and business sustainability of telecom operators.

Operators, investors and analysts all have the need to understand – and reliably compare – efficiency levels of operators. What if it could be done with one figure?  

In 2012, telecom efficiency specialist tefficient developed the Efficiency Index based on thorough data research – collecting, analysing and correlating data from more than 400 local operators globally – combining it with data from telecom regulators, governments and international institutions like IMF, ITU and UN. The work has been redone and model recalibrated based on new operator data for the new Efficiency Index 2013/2014. Read about the methodology. 

It's optional to publish the Index, but some operators have. See the Efficiency Index top list here.

Efficiency self-test now available at

Mobile operators can now conduct a self-test of their efficiency, using the Efficiency self-test at
It can serve as an initial step in order to understand the competitiveness of own efficiency levels. The second step would be to get your own Efficiency Index. For yet deeper understanding of efficiency - and what can be done to improve it - the last step would be one of tefficient's benchmarks, see
