December 2016

Update of the Tight oligopoly 2015 report (link).

Fixed-line broadband interest, zero-rating video and big telco ownership impedes competition in mobile markets
  • Fixed-centric operators sell 8 times less gigabytes for €30 than mobile-centric operators
  • Operators that zero-rate video sell 8 times less gigabytes for €30 than operators that do not zero-rate video
  • Operators that are owned by EU’s big telcos (Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom, Orange and Telefonica) sell 4 times less gigabytes for €30 than operators that are not owned by big telcos
  • The gap between the gigabytes sold for an affordable price by mobile-centric operators versus fixed-centric operators has grown considerably during 2016

We modelled LTE network capacity based on existing FDD and TDD spectrum holdings (and potential acquisitions in 2.3 and 3.4-3.8 GHz bands) and sizes of the macro site grids. Without and with Massive MIMO in the TDD bands. Topical for operators contemplating fixed-to-mobile broadband substitution ahead of upcoming 700, 1500 (SDL), 2300, 3400-3600 MHz spectrum auctions.
