The telecommunications sector is one bright spot in a still-troubled world economy. Firms are investing heavily in infrastructure to meet future demand. But the Economist Intelligence Unit’s forecasts and in-depth analysis paint a far more complex picture – one framed by rapid technological advances, uncertain revenue sources, China’s communications revolution and competition from interlopers such as cable companies and Google. getAbstract commends this work as a valuable arsenal of information for industry professionals and investors who need to be forearmed in a rapidly changing field.
In this summary, you will learn
- How global investment in telecoms infrastructure will fare through 2017,
- What roles the developed and emerging markets play in the industry, and
- How cable and media companies will challenge traditional telecoms.
