Pricing

Anyone Know Where to Find Good Pricing Data Around Here?

Yes, we do know where to find good pricing data around here. (Great pricing data, actually.)

TeleGeography's Pricing Suite is a portal to all of our network pricing data and related analysis. It's fueled stories like this and this and even this.

Today we're answering a handful of quick questions about how we maintain our databases—and how you can get access.

The Decade Pricing Challenge

You've seen the decade challenge. Post a picture of yourself in 2010 and another in 2020. Compare. Contrast. See how far we've come. (Or reflect on a time lost, wondering aloud why youth is wasted on the young.)  

At PTC 2020, Brianna Boudreau thought it would be fun to do the same thing with TeleGeography's network pricing research. She came armed with data from our January 2010 workshop, as well as our latest and greatest analysis.

Why Do Internet Service Providers Need to Pay for Local Access?

Our pricing team fields all kinds of questions from our users about the pricing data you'll find in our databases. We were recently asked why internet service providers need to pay for local access.

TeleGeography's Business Broadband Acronym Cheatsheet

The telecom space is loaded with acronyms. (Take this from the people who recently published a post about the difference between IP VPN, DIA, and EVPN.)

Today our Business Broadband Research Service team is giving telecom newbies and pros alike the broadband acronym cheatsheet of their dreams.

What is IP Transit?

Only a few of the world’s largest internet backbone providers get transit-free status, exchanging all of their traffic with other backbone providers via peering.

Alas, downstream internet service providers (ISPs), content providers, and other internet operators must purchase at least some upstream “transit” in order to connect their internal networks to the internet at large.

Sharing a Year's Worth of Telecom Data Around the Globe

As another year comes to a close, we're looking at where we've been in 2019. Quite literally, too.

This year, the TeleGeography team shared research around the globe, hitting six continents and more than 20 different countries.

Checking In: Yup. Price Erosion is Still Very Real.

IP transit prices vary across the globe, but they have one thing in common. They all decline.

In the last three years, some of the highest rates of price erosion occurred in markets with the greatest competition and the largest amount of international internet traffic exchange—namely, global hubs.

Today we're exploring some of the most notable examples of this.

Will Bandwidth Prices Eventually be the Same on All Routes?

I call this one the price parity myth—the notion that one day bandwidth prices will be the same on all routes.

Watch Now: The 2019 TeleGeography Telecom Pricing Update

10G wavelength pricing is declining. So is 100G—faster, even, than 10G.

At PTC 2019 Senior Analyst Mike Bisaha illustrated the extent to which prices are dropping on core routes using a series of images representing the last three years of price movement.

The Year in Slide Decks: Watch, Download, and Explore Our 2018 Telecom Presentations

This year we've traveled from Bangkok to London, from Cape Town to Los Angeles. We've used these opportunities to continue our research and present our findings around the world.

As 2018 winds down, we've compiled the slide decks, interviews, and videos from a year of telecom travels. When viewed together, these presentations create a snapshot of the year in communication.
