Telecom Tariffs: Fixed, Mobile, Broadband

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0205810/Telecom-Tariffs-Fixed-Mobile-Broadband.html

Analysing and comparing telecom prices is both a complex and sensitive subject, involving many and varied parameters. To help readers deepen their understanding of these parameters and the impact they have on pricing, IDATE has produced a detailed report on the leading fixed broadband access and mobile service providers' pricing schemes in the major European markets and in the United States, drawing on an exclusive database.

Key questions

- What discounts are offered according to contract length?

- What differences are there between "classic" and SIM-only offers, and between buying in a shop and buying online?

- What impact do possible set up calls and time credits have on the real price of mobile calls?

- How can bonuses and discounts be accounted for?

- Is the principle of flat rate billing a ubiquitous part of fixed broadband offers? Have triple-play bundles become the norm?

- What differences are there between ADSL, cable modem and very high-speed access prices?
