The telco collapse happened in April 2000 and in that year most of the pain was felt by the dotcoms. Some 40% of these companies bit the dust, mainly (over 80%) of them operated from the USA. The ‘proper’ telco crisis emerged towards the end of that year and spilled over into 2001. It looks like it bottomed out in late 2002. A very slow recovery became visible in 2003, but it will not be until 2005-2008 before we will see healthy growth coming back into the industry. This report takes a closer look at the events and issues. This report was archived in May 2005.
