Global - Convergence - Turning Carriers into MultiService Operators

Synopsis

Archived report: this report was archived in April 2006 and has not been updated. We are no longer in the early adopter phase of the DSL market cycle. The increasing maturity of the market means that prices for all basic services are based on commodity product pricing so it is increasingly difficult for a carrier to survive without offering Value Added Services. In this environment the drive to increase the Average Revenue per User (ARPU) and reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the network increases in importance, as it becomes a significant factor in the difference between a profitable and non-profitable Access deployment. The key to a healthy ROI and profitability is not typically the total cost of the equipment, but the ongoing cost of ownership and the value added service revenue available to the Provider.

"As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it."

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
