Your Text is on Fire: OTT’s to burn 40% SMS revenue by 2015

In four years’ time, Telco SMS revenue will decline on average by around 40% across Europe and the Middle East according to the senior execs at this month’s Telco 2.0 brainstorm in London. The main cause is competitive pressure from ‘OTT’ alternatives (Facebook, Skype, Google, BBM, etc). Mobile voice isn’t that far behind, with a 20% decline foreseen.
