We have observed a number of providers moving away from pure mobile broadband tariffs, and rather, offering mobile data only within a mobile voice tariff.  Both Movistar and Tigo in Colombia, Cellcom in Israel, and Yoigo in Spain are providers that no longer offer mobile broadband-only pricing. We anticipate seeing more providers following this trend in future.

Since the March 2018 update, the OECD Mobile Broadband Price Benchmarking Service has included the new OECD 2017 baskets, and these are shown in the table below. There is now no distinction between device types, so all baskets can be used with any device. In addition, the usage tiers have been expanded to include a 20GB and a 50GB basket. Further, two short-term usage baskets have been included.



The 2010 baskets are still available within the system.

Historical pricing for the OECD countries over several years is also available. Please contact us for more details.

Strategy Analytics additionally produces benchmarking services for fixed and mobile voice, and fixed broadband, as well as bundled telecoms services and Pay TV.
