The November 2018 update for Fixed Voice services incorporates the new OECD 2017 baskets. The main difference between these and the 2010 baskets is the removal of international calls in the 2017 baskets. The 2010 baskets have still been included in the system, however, although for this and future updates, international pricing will no longer be updated.

In addition to the inclusion of the new baskets, it is now possible to view the results in a wider range of currencies.

Please note: For the OECD Leased Line Price Benchmarking Service, there have been no changes to the 2010 basket methodology.

Historical pricing for the OECD countries over several years is also available. Strategy Analytics also produces benchmarking services for mobile voice, and fixed and mobile broadband, as well as bundled telecoms services and Pay TV.
