large business users market


Explanation:

Daarbij kan onderscheid worden gemaakt tussen residentiële consumenten en de zakelijke gebruikers. De zakelijke gebruikers kunnen weer verdeeld worden in grootzakelijke gebruikers en het midden- en kleinbedrijf.

large-scale


Explanation:
grootzakelijk does not exist.
What I think they mean is "grootschalig", that is the large-scale users. A large-scale user need not necessarily also be a large-scale business. "large-scale customers" could be a smaller manufacturers, whose main activity lies in the application of GPRS technology.

large scale/ large business user market


Explanation:
Medestrijders, ik vind grootschalig en large scale ook beter. Ik wil niet eigenwijs zijn, maar in het gangbare Dutchtone marketing language, die wordt gebezigd in het telecom wereldje door Nederlanders en Fransen en Engelsen, wordt dit helaas wel zo aangeduid als large business user en grootzakelijk (is ook typisch een KPN kreet) ook al komt het niet in Van Dale voor. Helaas is de Nederlandse (en nu naar blijkt ook de Engelse) taal sterk onderhevig aan buitenlandse invloeden.

big business


Explanation:
It refers to large scale enterprises that dominate sectors of commerce and industry and by extension to the leviathan (in the Hobbsian sense - i.e. the by now largely unconscious 'social contract' sense) which feeds and at the same time destroys us. That is, it has a quasi-philosophical meaning. While 'large scale enterprise' is nice-speak for it, the term 'big business' is meaningful for its down to earth quality.


    Read 'The Economist' or similar newspaper and you'll find lots of contexts.
