Consolidation across Europe, new entrants to the market, increasing download speeds and converging product sets all mean that existing business models in Telecoms companies are under threat. In addition, competition is intense and consumers are better informed than ever before.
Against this background, Telcos need to continue to focus on getting the fundamentals of cost and value, speed, reliability and coverage, service quality and compliance right, in order to satisfy customers and regulators alike. In parallel, Telcos must provide new connected services that customers now expect - with the prevalence of Smartphones and Tablets, coupled with increasing bandwith, the much discussed ‘convergence’ theme is now a reality. In short, there is enormous opportunity for Telcos today.
However, Telcos will need to evaluate how and when they will invest to take advantage of megatrends such as quad play, 5G, monetisation of data and the internet of things.
