This paper elaborates on the relevance of Tele-Economic research to understand the effect that Machine-Type Commu- nications (MTC) has on different markets and also the market forces affecting the adoption of services based on MTC. The paper is presented in a tutorial form, offering concept and definitions of economic terms that are gaining relevance in the technical community in the MTC context. The concept of services is further analysed in as a change in the tele- communication industry mind-set in order to tap into the economic value of MTC in the realization of the Internet-of- Things.
