Broadband subscribers in Europe can now get access to cheaper services, new research has suggested.

According to the Triple-play Pricing Study from Analysys Mason, the average price paid for such solutions fell by €5 (£4.09) between the final three months of 2009 and the second quarter of this year.

In addition, access speeds rose, with a fifth of the tariffs analysed offering bandwidths of 30Mb or greater.

"Consequently, the average price per megabit per second has declined from €7.5 in the fourth quarter of 2009 to just €5.8 in the second quarter of 2010," Martin Scott, Senior Analyst at Analysys Mason, explained.

"Some service providers, such as Romtelecom in Romania, offer services at a rate as low as €0.1 per megabit per second."

The release of the findings has come after a study by Strategy Analytics suggested that UK consumers have access to better broadband than their US counterparts.

It ranked the UK 22nd in terms of the quality of its web services.
