Alternative network operators
Alternative fixed-line operators and ISPs should consider AIR as a means to roll- out an own network
- AIR can be conceived as own infrastructure or to complement already existing infrastructure
- AIR can be rolled-out economically and rapidly, as the system only requires few base stations thanks to a cell-radius of over 15 km
AIR allows fixed alternative operators to boost their revenues
- AIR enables them to offer Triple Play bundles to residential customers in a vast geographic area
- AIR enables them to provide voice and broadband services to business customers
With AIR, fixed alternative operators and ISPs can gain independence from fixed operators
- enabling operators to freely define products, quality levels and tariff structures
- liberating them from sometimes lengthy unbundling and wholesale processes of fixed incumbents
- and allowing them to attack incumbents through low-cost IP and voice services
Subscriber acquisition costs are low at only a few hundred Euro per net addition for subscriber acquisition, CPE investment and installation costs
Alternative operators can achieve fast pay-back periods with AIR. Free cash flow break-even can be estimated within 23 months of network launch
AIR is ideal for fixed alternative networks wanting to expand their service range and to become independent from the incumbent's access network
Fixed alternative operators should consider to use AIR as a stand-alone solution or to complement their existing infrastructure.
Operators that roll-out a stand-alone AIR network can expect that their investments pay back within only 23 months in a sample calculation.
