Report Summary:

Teligen’s H2 2018 update of its Bundle Benchmarking service reveals that for a user requiring quad play (FBB-FV-MV-TV), the cheapest offer comes from SFR in France, while Videotron in Canada is the most expensive.

The third update of the Teligen Bundle Benchmarking service is now available, based on bundle pricing in July/August 2018

The service provides comprehensive pricing on bundled service offers from the main 3-4 providers across 40 countries worldwide, and allows users to view the cost of double, triple, quad and quint play services, using predefined usage baskets. Users can also build their own usage baskets, and tailor the country output.

The graph below shows the results for a basic quad play service covering fixed broadband, fixed voice, mobile voice and television. The minimum broadband download speed required is 5 Mbps and there is no requirement (beyond the basic connection) on either fixed or mobile voice. While the TV service is included, there is no minimum requirement on the number of channels. This ensures that all quad play offers are considered in the comparison.

The cheapest per country offer – at USD PPP 41 per month - comes from SFR in France, with its Box Starter ADSL + Forfait Starter 2h service. This includes a 20 Mb/s broadband service, unlimited calls to fixed voice, 120 minutes of mobile calls, unlimited SMS and 40 Mb of mobile data. In addition, SFR TV with 160 channels is also included. At the other end of the scales, Canada’s Videotron is the most expensive, at USD PPP 131. This provides a 15 Mb/s broadband line with 50GB download allowance, fixed voice line, mobile voice with unlimited minutes and SMS and 4GB data, plus TV Decouverte with 33 TV channels.

Although the broadband download speed requirement for this basket is a very modest 5 Mbps, most services are significantly higher than this, with three quarters of the countries having the cheapest offer ≥ 20 Mbps.

As this basket requires four services to be offered within a bundle, there are much fewer countries that feature in the results compare to, say, a double or triple play basket. This reflects the reduced availability of bundle offers covering four services across the countries covered. While the inclusion of mobile services within bundles is seeing reasonable traction across developed countries, it remains significantly behind fixed services bundling which is available across all, or almost all countries. The table below shows the availability of the different bundle combinations across the 40 countries.

 

The new service, which is aimed at service providers and regulators alike, is currently updated twice a year. A demo version of the system is available, as well as a demonstration video outlining the system layout and capabilities.
