Even more varied than the speed of delivery was the frequency with which each carrier met their installation commitments. The study compared the carrier delivery commitment to the actual date the circuit was installed to generate an on-time delivery percentage. Even in highly developed countries 30-40% on time rates were common. In many cases the speed of delivery did not correlate with the on-time percentage, even instances where the fastest carrier in a given country also had the highest percentage of missed commit dates.
