Australia - Analysis telco market - Planning for 2004
What’s hot in 2003? Are the disruptive developments getting a foothold in the market? Or will the regulatory framework continue to drive changes in the market? Who will be the winners and who will be the losers? Keep an eye on Wi Fi, WiMax, DSL TV, VoIP more industry consolidation and yes the recovery of 2003 will finally start gaining some momentum driven by broadband developments. The incumbent, who will only react once they get stung into action, will mainly drive these developments (lower prices, higher speeds). 2004 will be the year that this is going to happen.
