Archived report. Despite economic and financial upheavals the telecoms industry is moving ahead at a fast pace. As a matter of fact our industry is one of the least affected by this turmoil, and in many ways it will be a catalyst for transformation.
It is very clear that many of the social, economic and financial structures have outlived their usefulness and that there is no longer a linear way forward. We will have to come up with new solutions and in many ways ICT will be the game-changer.
Since the arrival of the internet, the focus of the industry has moved from providing defined end-products to becoming a facilitator in the development of a range of new products, companies, and indeed new industries.
Consumers are still enamoured by mobile technology - and smart phones and improved infrastructure have only fuelled the continuing uptake of mobility around the world. The number of Internet users continues to increase as the penetration of both fixed and mobile broadband becomes more accessible around the globe.
