Australia - Industry Analysis - New telco business models - 2003


While improvements arrived in 2003, the industry still has a long way to go before we can talk about a recovery. While there is plenty of new growth in the data and broadband markets, the incumbents grip on up and downstream industry activities, makes it very difficult to make a decent profit that would stimulate further investments by the competitors to the incumbents. Some disruptive developments such as wireless broadband, WiMax, VoIP, VoDSL, and FTTH might help the push towards recovery.
