This report was archived in September 2007 and has not been updated. Growth is continuing in 2nd tier telco market which reached the $8.7 billion mark by 2006, but with lower broadband margins, a saturated mobile market and lots of price competition, growth in ‘real’ revenue is much harder to find. It favours the larger players, but at the same time the new converged environment offers plenty of niche market opportunities for smaller players. The industry will have to move into value-added services in order to increase profitability. ULL, DSLAMs and triple play models are the key to success in this market. The number of large competitors has increased as a result of consolidation, which has created a healthier industry segment overall. Detailed revenues, market share and market growth statistics are included in this report.
