Global - Forecasts - Industry - Strategic, Political, Regulatory Developments in 2004


Regulations introduced over the last decade have largely failed to create government policy outcomes, aimed at increased competition in the fixed market. After the telco crisis, incumbents with their vertical integrated models have emerged as the winners. However, slow but steady progress has been made in wholesale, unbundled local loop and line sharing. Either naturally or driven by regulations, structural separation will eventually happen. Without large scale funding, incumbents will fragment, which in turn will lead to mergers and acquisition. This report was archived in 2005.
