As the german auction for UMTS is now over, the first analysis is coming in.

In a german article on GNN (http://www.gnn.de/0008/9319.html) they say that an average monthly bill of 100 DEM (about 50 euro) per user will be needed to get the money for UMTS back in. They link to Clusterconsulting (http://www.clusterconsulting.com/home.swf) who seem to have released that study, i did not find it though. But this would require the service providers to also get royalties from m-commerce and other things.

I have to say that 100 DEM is not too much. This is a per person bill and includes the money they get when a phone is called I would presume. If the number is correct then this is very good news I would say.
