OECD bundled communication price baskets
Providing internationally comparable measures on prices of communication services
has been a core task of the OECD through its Working Party on Communication Infrastructures
and Services Policy (WPCISP) for decades. Currently, the majority of broadband services
in OECD countries are based on bundled offers. This report develops OECD price baskets
for bundled communication services to complement existing fixed and mobile price baskets.
The baskets for bundled communication services range from dual play to quadruple play
baskets, which include different combinations of fixed broadband, fixed voice, mobile
voice and data, and pay-TV services. The report proposes 30 bundled baskets, accounting
for different usage patterns and service elements. With increased convergence and
the prevalence of communication bundles in the majority of OECD countries, this methodology
sets a reference point for discussions on price baskets for bundled communication
services in international fora.
