Industry Insights

Other factors that have held up this industry include tight fiscal controls. Wireless companies have been protected by a largely variable cost structure which allows them to cope with even the steepest cyclical changes. Saying this, telecom equipment vendors, wired and wireless service providers, and Internet companies face major challenges. Many carriers are facing price competition and overcapacity. Governments are demanding infrastructure improvements and reducing entry barriers to the industry. Recent innovations such as video on demand, IP applications, and 3G wireless services have yet to meet investors' high growth expectations. The consumer market has become more fragmented with new technology choices. The list goes on. Again, on the other hand new technology trends such as next generation broadband networks, sophisticated devices, convergence of fixed and mobile services provides opportunities for new revenue streams and reduced operating costs.
