Fixed Line Procurement Cost and Supplier Intelligence

Building new telecommunications infrastructure and services is quite expensive. Existing network upgrades can be as costly. Both demand significant capital outlays. The key cost factors for wired telecommunication systems include infrastructure setup, equipment, continuous maintenance, labor, cable installation, switching equipment installation and regulatory compliance. The average cost of installing fiber optic for high-speed internet connectivity to homes and businesses-either underground or through aerial fiber-is around USD1,000 to USD1,250 per residential residence passed, or USD60,000 to USD80,000 per mile. An increase in bandwidth also raises the cost of a network connection.  A throughput capacity of 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) will cost more than one with a capacity of 250 Mbps in a Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) link. The supplementary expenses factors are the permissions, licenses, and authorizations from municipal and other governmental bodies that must be secured before construction.


Sourcing of the category requires identification and partnering with vendors and suppliers who can provide the required equipment, components, and services at competitive prices. Fixed broadband and telephone services fall under this category. The American company Verizon surpassed competitors AT&T and Deutsche Telekom globally in 2022, with a worth of USD67.44 billion. Singapore with an average of 242 Mbps, had the fastest fixed broadband internet speed. The United Arab Emirates came in second with an average fixed broadband internet speed of about 217 Mbps, followed by Chile. Security and compliance, customer support, coverage, reliability, and uptime are other informed sourcing practices for the category.
