Tele2 NL, KPN, T-Mobile US show value of a GB falling quickly

Monday 16 November 2015 | 12:38 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Tele2 Netherlands has announced new mobile plans, designed especially for use on its own LTE network. KPN announced almost at the same time an offer for 100,000 rural households to use LTE as a replacement for the fixed line. And T-Mobile US unveiled its Un-carrier X offer 'Binge On', offering unlimited data for video streaming. These are just a few examples of the strong decline in the value of mobile data, underlining the need for continued innovation and cost controls in the mobile market.
