TeleGeography: Bandwidth Cost Declines for the Rich and Remains High for Developing Markets

TeleGeography reports that "Prices for wholesale IP transit service continue to decline throughout the world. According to new data from TeleGeography’s IP Transit Pricing Service, price declines in most locations accelerated between Q2 2011 and Q2 2012, compared with the longer-term trend".

Erik Kreifeldt (pictured), TeleGeography analyst, said ‘IP transit prices have reached extremely low levels in developed markets, but remain high in many developing markets and in countries that are remote from major IP transit hubs. Nevertheless, few places remain where transit prices exceed USD100 per Mbps. As carriers expand into emerging markets and establish new price floors in developed markets, global IP transit prices will continue to fall".
