Average Revenue Per Unit

A measure of the total amount of revenue a product generates, divided by the total number of users or units of that product. Companies use the ARPU to determine how profitable a certain product is, and, if necessary, make improvements, expand, or cancel the product. ARPU is commonly used in the telecommunications industry to determine the revenue generated per cell phone user on various plans and/or types of cell phone.
