Australia - ISP Market - Industry Analysis, Overview & Take-overs


The Internet was initially ignored by the traditional telco and media companies, and was belatedly embraced by them, but now it threatens the core of their businesses. In the meantime, new Internet media companies didn’t wait to embrace the Internet. They are now setting the scene as the old players are scrambling to keep pace. They still have to go through lengthy operational and market convergence before they can fully embrace the Internet model. This report also provides a full overview of all the mergers and acquisitions that have taken place in this market since the mid-1990s. Last updated 2007.
