London, November 9th 2006 – BroadGroup Tariff Services, the one-stop shop for tariff information, research and analysis services has announced the launch of its annual Termination Rates reports and analysis.
The global report – divided into 12 regions – provides an analysis of fixed rates together with a database of prices detailing Termination Rates for international voice services in a total of 224 countries.
The database, delivered in spreadsheet format, details the average termination rate by country by month, for each of the 12 months across 2005 (December 2004-December 2005).
In the European Region, the report findings suggest a decline of around 13% overall for fixed Termination Rates since the previous year. The Eastern Europe Region is split between those countries with rates that are less than US$ 0.02 or in decline to this level, with reflects cost, and those countries that are maintaining non cost related fixed termination rates, such as Belarus, Bosnia and Ukraine. Conversely, “aggressive” Termination Price reductions have been made by countries such as Poland, Estonia and Czech Republic.
“This detail of this new resource makes it an indispensable reference pricing guide for all carriers operating in international voice markets as well as regulatory organisations”, commented Margrit Sessions, managing director at BroadGroup Tariff Services. “By using estimates of the percentage of International Fixed Voice Minutes that are terminated into each country, it is also possible to obtain an absolute value of each country in the Region, in monetary terms, without the distortion created by the change that has occurred in minutes terminated from the previous year.”
The twelve regions covered in the reports are as follows:
Region 1 – North Africa
Region 2 – Sub Saharan Africa
Region 3 – Central Asia and Caucasus
Region 4 – East Asia
Region 5 – Middle East
Region 6 – Oceania
Region 7 – South East Asia and Australasia
Region 8 – Central and Eastern Europe
Region 9 – Western Europe
Region 10 – Caribbean
Region 11 – Central America
Region 12 – South America
The reports are available as a bundle, or individually.
