Summary

The telecom services industry is on a flat to failing growth path. Growing aggression from Silicon Valley, national regulation, and decades of pricing increases have conspired to weaken the business case for the vertically-integrated telecom services provider. There is also no sign of these pressures letting up in the near term.

In facing up to this market reality, many operators have embarked on a strategy to actively embrace disruptive, cost-saving technologies, consider alternative operating models, seek out lateral partnership and digital channel opportunities. Only the digitally fittest will survive.

This report provides information on key themes that will impact the telecom operators sector over the next two years, including 5G, AI, software defined networks, convergence and quad-play, IoT, and cloud.
