Telecom Industry - Changing Landscape

OECD’s Communications Outlook 2005 report finds the communications industry has returned to profitability but developments in Internet technology are challenging the role and business model of traditional telecoms companies, creating pressures for a new approach to industry regulation. Some key findings:
- From 2003 onwards, the number of fixed phone lines actually fell in OECD countries, with mobile operators gaining market share at the expense of the traditional telecoms companies.
- VoIP presents a challenge to mobile telephones, which in many countries are now more numerous than fixed connections
- OECD countries reveal an average saving of 80% by using VoIP for international calls over traditional carriers.
- Wi-Fi hotspots in cities, will provide tougher competition for 3G mobile operators
- Service operators will increasingly offer integrated video, voice and data products in a single service package.
