What services provide realtime (or daily-updated) basic traffic informations for Western Europe ?

For example, traffic.com/Navteq provides such data to Bing Maps for US/Canada and Microsoft suggests CENTRICO/OTAP for Europe in its documentation (which is outdated, EasyWay seems to have replaced this service), but its website is slightly confusing.

Are there other major actors in this market for Europe ?

For example, One Step Ahead seems to provide [free] data for Germany, Netherlands and Belgium, but it's a single file per country (hence not tiled data), and I'm not sure how often it is updated.

  • Other than NavTeq, Inrix and Tomtom any other companies that are in the traffic business?

From a recent Navteq press release: "... NAVTEQ Traffic is also currently available in (these) 23 countries around the world: Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, United States." A number of these cover Western Europe.

As an aside (since I sometimes forget TomTom is no longer partnering with Navteq): Google maps, and Navteq, which is owned by Nokia, are TomTom's commercial rivals in the digital map-making market.
