European businesses wanting to create cross-border leased line links are being hampered by excessive costs, and find it easier to establish links with telecoms companies in the US, according to research by telecoms consultancy Philips Tarifica. Despite the leading providers like BT dropping their rates by as much as 50%, the findings show that high prices continue to prevent European companies from using leased line technology. The report found a UK company must pay 71% more to establish a 64Kbps link with the US than Germany, and 32% more for a 2Mbps link.
