Global - Analysis - Telecoms developments - Strategic overview

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2006 and has not been updated. As interesting developments are now well and truly underway, it is good to have a strategic look at them. Key developments involve triple play business models. VoIP will be the key element in such packages, but it is broadband TV that makes the product viable. Wireless broadband offers new opportunities where mobile data has failed, as well as in niche markets in competition with DSL. This report provides a high level analysis and overview of these developments.
