Executive Summary

The overall market in Western Europe continued to grow steadily, bolstered by the strong mobile and broadband sectors and continuing developments in the digital TV sector. For incumbents, falling fixed voice revenue has forced them to shift their focus to mobile data and IP-delivered content.

 

In coming years consumer migration to mobile and VoIP alternatives, as well as the move to all-IP NGNs, will further marginalise fixed-voice as a business component. Many operators are thus rapidly shifting their focus to revenue-rich sectors such as mobile data and to content delivered over upgraded IP networks. These services, including Video-on-Demand, IPTV and consumer-driven content, still require fine-tuning to meet consumer expectations but are likely winners in coming years. Large-scale investments in upgrading broadband networks promise considerable development in these sectors in 2008 as infrastructure becomes better able to deliver services to a critical mass of the population.

 

In most markets, mobile telephony and broadband remain the drivers fuelling the more positive outlook in Europe’s telecom landscape. This was reflected in the massive investments during the year in ADSL2+ and fibre roll-outs, and in new mobile technologies.
