Tight oligopoly mobile markets in EU28 in 2016
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
  • The gap between the gigabytes sold for an affordable price by operators that do not zero-rate video versus operators that do has grown considerably during 2016
