This report compares fixed broadband tariffs across 21 countries in the Americas, Europe, Middle East & Africa (MEA), and Asia-Pacific (AP) based on data from three major operators per country.


  • xDSL- and FTTx-inclusive tariffs each accounted for approximately 30% of the plans surveyed, while the share of cable-inclusive plans was 18%. Plans with “other” technologies accounted for a very substantial 22%.
  • Some of the most expensive FTTx-inclusive tariff plans were for the extremely high-speed tiers (1Gbps) now being introduced in multiple markets. We counted more than 50 1Gbps tariff plans globally in 2014, and we expect more gigabit speed tiers and associated high relative premiums to launch in 2015.
