The traditional business models for fixed and mobile operators are under pressure in all core products – voice, messaging, broadband access – particularly in mature markets.
A new business model is described here: one where operators make money from new types of customers rather than exclusively from end-users – and the business opportunity is potentially very large – c$125Bn. This additional, incremental revenue to the $250Bn described in the Future Broadband Business Models Report. This report is designed to help readers understand the nature and size of this new business model opportunity in its entirety. (March 2008)
