Our Methodology:

Tarifica uses the OECD methodology for its benchmark studies. In this approach, “Model User” profiles (20 in total) are designed, each of which has specific usage requirements. Then, Tarifica’s analysts compute the least expensive plan for each profile, following the Rational Consumer model. The analysts consider factors such as plan validity periods, promotions, taxes, and one-time fees, to ensure all plans in the study are comparable.  All prices are then converted to USD and scaled using a Purchasing Power Parity factor to account for differences in the costs of living in the selected countries.
