And another interesting chart from Telecom Austria's recent annual financial report. Page 31 shows how over the past years, fixed an mobile network operators in Europe have started to re-integrate again to leverage their fixed and mobile assets for combined offers to customers and to benefit from a common network. One of the few places where the trend has not stuck is the UK. Bad luck for BT in my eyes who was just a bit too quick to sell off their mobile business at the time.
It's still early days though and I haven't seen a lot of products coming out of such re-integrations yet. But let's see, maybe in two or three years there will be a chart that shows in which countries combined offers beyond a single invoice are on the market.
One thought on “Fixed Mobile Integration in Europe Moves Ahead”
Femtocell and IMS for instance may actually help to accelerate that trend.
