The five largest Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in each country were included. Data was collected from ISP websites between 10th and 24th October 2017. Offers were analysed for Single Play (standalone internet), for Double Play with fixed telephony, Double Play with television services, and for Triple Play. Offers for each of the four bundles were assigned to several download speed baskets ranging from 0.144 Mbps to more than 1 Gbps. To support valid cross-national comparison of retail prices of fixed broadband offers in each bundle and basket, consistent price normalisation procedures were applied. These take full account of features such as one-off fees, volume limits, discounts, different contract durations and varying telephony time limits. Applying the normalised prices in Euro (PPPs) [1], it was found that the least expensive countries for fixed broadband in the EU in 2017 were Romania, Latvia, Hungary and Lithuania. Prices differ considerably between the least and most expensive countries in the EU. In general, prices have fallen since 2016 in all but one bundle and basket combinations, however to different degree.
