Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated. There is now more global consensus that the real solution is structural separation, which will lead to the development of very focused, cost-efficient infrastructure operators. You might recall that we started to call for this solution back in 2000. For a long time BuddeComm was a voice in the wilderness, with just a few supporters in the OECD. However with broadband rapidly becoming the major driver in the telco industry, there is a growing demand for new services, which cannot be delivered by the telcos. In order to properly address new customer demand, horizontal business structures instead of vertical structures are required. While many telcos are reluctant to change, a need for more cost efficiencies will eventually push them to structurally separate their organisations to allow for new opportunities and challenges. This report provides critical analyses of the importance of structural separation for the future of the telecommunications industry; a separate report covers this topic from a regulatory view.
