Australia - Analysis - First Results of Structural Changes


This report has been archived and has not been updated. In order for the Australian industry to move into 2008, some serious structural changes need to be made to align their current businesses towards the challenges of media convergence. This is all the more important in order to break through the rhetoric and bullying that is taking place in Australia. Furthermore there are the cannibalisation effects of VoIP and on top that the access models are changing, with triple play emerging as the model forward. The industry will have to align itself along one of the three key structures: infrastructure, content and appliances. Lessons can be learned from an analysis of what is happening around the globe.
