Archived report. This report has been archived and not updated since. It has become clear that Over-The-Top (OTT) is ‘the new normal’ for the telecoms industry - with the emerging all-IP networks; telecoms services are basically moving to an OTT model. These services are seen as a threat by the traditional network operators and the companies offering them are perceived to be getting a free lunch over their networks – the European telcos are calling for international regulation.
While the story for the traditional players in the telecoms market is all about shrinkage, on the other hand we see significant growth in many of the new subsectors of the broader ICT market, which includes cloud computing, data centres and M2M.
This BuddeComm Intelligence Report explores the issues surrounding OTT developments in the telecoms sector and the industry transformation BuddeComm believes is required for the future.
OTT is the services model for the future for communications and media services, as well as a whole range of new ones, such as e-health, e-education, smart grids and the digital economy in general.

Paul, May I congratulate you on a very successful and enjoyable afternoon with the Minister. In providing the roundtable discussions between government and industry, it highlighted the strong interest by stakeholders in Broadband and its implementation but it also presented us with other issues and opportunities that we need to address.
