Analyst: Paul Budde


Power utilities around the world are recognising the natural competitive advantage they have in telecommunications. This comes from the use of infrastructure they have in place, their systems, a strong relationship with, and an understanding of a large customer base, and a core competency in network management and maintenance. It is a natural extension of business activity for a power company to enter into telecommunications. Technical trials for BPL have been in operation since 2004, but have so far not resulted in commercial roll outs. However, new developments such as Smart Grids and the structural changes taking place in the telco market are opening up new business opportunities for BPL.
