The Price Is Right — NSR's New Satellite Capacity Pricing Index Q1 2016 Is Published

[Satnews] NSR's Satellite Capacity Pricing Index Q1 2016, is the first report of its kind, one which takes actual pricing inputs from satellite operators on their rate cards for FSS and GEO-HTS capacity.

Compared to NSR's industry leading capacity studies, this pricing index zeroes in on today's pricing dynamic and provides real, current pricing information for satellite capacity at the most detailed level possible.

Satellite Capacity Pricing Index Q1 2016 addresses the critical question: how much does satellite capacity really cost? With detailed pricing information gathered from both global and regional satellite operators, The report offers a comprehensive & unbiased understanding of why satellite capacity pricing is evolving as it is, and where it may go in the future.

By compiling direct input from satellite operators and using market data, NSR’s Satellite Capacity Pricing Index Q1 2016, provides insight into pricing dynamics present in the satellite telecom industry, including:

  • What is the price of satellite capacity on an Mbps and MHz basis in all regions, applications and bands?
  • In what ways has the glut of capacity brought on by GEO-HTS impacted pricing, and in which regions? How might this change moving forward?
  • How has the high-level decline in pricing altered business models of satellite operators?
  • Have recent currency exchange rate fluctuations impacted pricing dynamics in different regions? And in what ways?
  • How does the pricing dynamic differ between traditional FSS capacity, GEO-HTS capacity, and non GEO-HTS capacity? 

NSR’s Satellite Capacity Pricing Index Q1 2016 contains metrics on current pricing figures segmented by region, application, and by FSS C-band, FSS Ku-band, and GEO-HTS, as well as significant historical pricing figures and analysis, supply/demand relationship discussion by region, and more. As pricing always varies from contract-to-contract, NSR’s Pricing Index provides the reader a ground-up understanding of the underlying issues and trends related to pricing today, while also formulating a benchmark for pricing.
