Synopsis

Wholesale Internet (IP Transit) bandwidth prices continue to fall in 2011 due to declining unit costs and rising competition. Despite the economic crisis, bandwidth price declines have not yet sped up – due partly to yearly bandwidth contracts that are still to be renewed. The growing Internet economy will ensure that the increased demand for wholesale IP bandwidth will continue in the longer term, with Internet traffic volumes growing at more than 60% each year. A number of countries around the world now operate successful FttX networks based on wholesale models. This report provides an overview of the wholesale market with a focus on international wholesale. It also includes a brief case study on Australia.

Latest developments: Internet bandwidth prices continue to decline at around 25% a year; discrepencies exist between various markets however, depending how much competition is in play.
