Analyst: Paul Budde


This report has been archived. After some very tough years the 2nd tier market is finally turning the corner, although still struggling. After years of battling, regulations are finally started to fall in place that are providing the market with an economic viable wholesale platform. With good wholesale prices in place, by late 2007 the industry has increased the number of lines which they now operate independently from Telstra. The key drivers here are players such as Optus, PowerTel, iiNet and Internode. Within the next few years we will see broadband access becoming near universal, either through fixed or wireless connections. This will lead to further commoditisation and will see more consolidation. While WiMAX will in the short term not have a major impact on the overall market, wireless broadband developments in regional markets and in niche metropolitan markets will certainly also allow for innovations and expansion. Detailed revenues, market share analyses and forecast statistics for 2008 and 2009 are included in this report and broken down by the major players as well as the three market segments: fixed voice, mobile and data.
