Telecom Services: A Global Outlook
San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – The telecommunications industry is recognized as a major infrastructure sector in both the developed and emerging nations. The world telecommunications industry now covers a number of technology-enhanced businesses. The global telecom sector is evolving dynamically due to the ever increasing penetration of communication services; and the merger of information and communication services such as mobile and fixed-line telephony, Internet and broadband access, as well as pay TV broadcasting. Next generation network standards are evolving aiming at quicker data connectivity, fast and high resolution video streaming and applications with rich multimedia.
The focus of the worldwide telecom services industry is shifting from the legacy of long-distance and local voice call services to data and video services. Telecommunications industry now includes Internet services, wireless communications, cable TV systems, satellite communications and fiber optics networks. Global mobile service penetration reached 90% with the rural average touching 80%. While Asia and Europe are very close in terms of revenue generation, the Asian telecom industry is far ahead of US and European markets in terms of the fast-expanding subscriber base driven by mobile communications. However, European and US network operators enjoy higher average revenue per user (ARPU) compared to their Asian counterparts. Overall, the Asian telecom services sector is anticipated to overtake Europe in terms of revenue generation in the near future.
While global fixed-line broadband subscriptions increased significantly in the recent years, the rate of penetration in developing countries remains miniscule in comparison to that of developed countries. Emerging countries in the Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa regions are expected to be the main geographical growth drivers for the global broadband services segment. The growing popularity of smart phones, tablet PCs, eReaders, netbooks and other portable devices is driving the exponential growth of mobile broadband subscription and data services. The migration of consumers from 2G to 3G networks is picking up pace with the spread of the service improving dramatically over the last two years. Norway, Sweden and Ukraine are among countries that joined the United States in offering advanced ultra-high-speed 4G services. The pace of growth of mobile services in developing countries is increasing each year, while that in the developed countries is beginning to slacken due to the high penetration in those regions.
