<p>Knowledge is Negotiating Power - Instant Benchmarks
World first online telecommunications price benchmarking service</p>
<p>Monday 26th July 2004 – Telsyte has today launched the world’s first independent online price benchmarking service for telecommunications services. Telsyte is a leading Australian telecommunications research organisation.</p>
<p>Telsyte’s new Instant Benchmark service is an online service that provides instant web access to information from Telsyte's exhaustive pricing information database. Telsyte produces research that tracks the actual prices paid for Australian wholesale, business and residential telecommunications services.</p>
<p>The Instant Benchmark service offers comprehensive pricing benchmark data for 13 categories of telecommunications services, with continuously updated data available for 961 individual pricing benchmark tables.</p>
<p>Pricing benchmark information can be purchased on a pay-per-view basis by credit card, or via a subscription service. Pay-per-view Instant Benchmarks range from $55 to $550 including GST, depending on the type of service being benchmarked.</p>
<p>Shara Evans, Managing Director of Telsyte commented, “A lot of companies take a blind-man’s bluff approach to buying voice and data services. They just ask for a few quotes, and think they are getting a good deal. With our Instant Benchmark service, anybody can instantly see if they are being charged too much for any voice or data service. Knowledge is negotiating power.”</p>
<p>The Instant Benchmark service is designed to allow organisations to quickly compare the pricing in their current voice and data service bills with the range of prices currently being offered in the Australian market.</p>
<p>Instant Benchmarks for the following Australian telecommunications services are immediately available: fixed and mobile voice services, enterprise data services (IP/MPLS, Ethernet, Frame Relay, ATM, Leased Line, ISDN), wholesale data services (Leased Line, Dark Fibre), Broadband Internet (covering both residential and business plans, ADSL, HFC – Cable, ISDN, Wireless, Satellite), and value added services (Voice Facilities Management and Managed CPE).</p>
<p>Telsyte’s Instant Benchmark service can be accessed at http://www.telsyte.com.au/instantbenchmark.</p>
<p>Telsyte also separately offers regular pricing research reports which consolidate the complete suite of pricing benchmarks tables for a particular type of service into a single report.</p>
