There is good reason to keep a critical eye on your bredbåndsregning the coming months.
Several of the big players in the broadband market as the TDC-owned YouSee, Hiper and Fullrate has screwed up prices at the same time that several new competitors have signed up.
- And the new providers are coming with some aggressive prices and will intensively chasing retail customers, predict teleanalytikeren John Strand from Strand Consult.
One of the main new competitors is a Boxer who already has a quarter of a million television customers and will now sell broadband via the cable tv network.
And this week launched the phone company 3 at the same time, a mobile bredbåndsabonnement, where for the 230 dollars per month can use up to a terabyte of data via its connection.
- It is interesting, because with the new 4G and soon the 5G standards, so we are going to see a serious alternative to normal broadband connections.
And when the 3 start to promote mobile broadband to the home, which they do, then it follows Telenor and Telia also on the wagon. It is completely safe, " says John Strand for Extra Magazine.
The third player
Besides the Boxer and the phone company 3 has a completely new company called Fastspeed volunteered in the fight. Unlike the others on the market yesterday the company also aimed to hijack the country's distribution networks as customers.
the Consequence for customers is that they now get some cheaper alternatives that can take the air out of the price increases, the big on the market is trying to force through.
- But it also becomes a completely different type of competition, as TDC is now experiencing. And the company is going under a massive pressure.
the phone company 3 has as an objective that they will steal up to 100,000 of those customers who today get their internet connection via TDC's copper network.
- also, I believe that in the coming years comes a lot of debate on the closed fiber network in the particular Jutland effectively local monopolies.
But until they are opened up, it will be all the places where the TDC cable-tv and fiber that fight only comes to a halt, assess John Beach.
