Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. Incumbents around the world are operating in a very challenging environment. In Asia, the incumbents have lost their monopoly status in their respective marketplaces, but have generally demonstrated considerable resilience in evolving new business strategies. In North America the incumbents are witnessing a trend of declining fixed-line revenues. The decline in fixed-line revenues is largely due to ongoing competition from the mobile sector and more recently from VoIP services. Revenue for most European incumbents has been at best stagnant during the last few years. In Latin America, despite a low teledensity, fixed-line growth has stagnated since 2001. In Africa, fixed-line revenues are growing in the wake of an emerging Internet and broadband market, even though this continent is more than any other dominated by the mobile sector. This report provides insight into revenue changes taking place for selected incumbents around the world.
