There are a couple of perceptions we can draw from the table above. 

To begin with, StarHub's expense of offers is comprised of three separate things, to be specific, expense of hardware sold, expense of administrations, and activity costs. These by and large record for 51.4% of StarHub's aggregate working costs in 2015.

In any case, the deterioration and amortization of advantages additionally implies that the benefits being referred to are 'spent' after some time – they could require supplanting so as to come and that would be an event when StarHub needs to horse up the money. 

Third, regarding characterizing StarHub's costs in the settled or variable camp (altered costs don't vacillate much with the measure of income StarHub procures; variable costs do), deterioration and amortization, staff costs, repairs and upkeep, and working leases are prevalently settled.
