Key questions answered by the analyst
Report analyst talks about the state of the mobile network operator (MNO) industry, its direction, the impact of the pandemic, growth opportunities, innovation and the challenges facing telecommunications. face as we move into the future.
1. What are the emerging trends? What would the analyst’s advice be to mobile network operators (MNOs) looking to expand in the near future?
The answer is that operators need to create deals not around but throughout the digital lifestyle of consumers, and simply ‘forget’ about monetizing their investments by selling voice, data and a few OTT offerings. While connectivity becomes a commodity and unlimited or more than enough data is taken for granted, the quality of the network – both experience and service – will always be a differentiator in my opinion. The content is more and more relevant, but more and more expensive. Still, many customers are willing to pay for a better experience and better branding. This way you are also sending a strong message to your existing customer base. And keeping them informed that you are “there” is as important as planning.
Through working with operator clients, five main strategies to drive revenue growth have been identified. Their potential varies, and some are long-term bets, while others are short-term, non-structural measures.
2. Are operators making money these days? Who does the analyst think can reserve profits and how can other mobile operators emulate them? Any case of a specific operator who could have made a difference would be helpful to the readers of the report.
The telecommunications market in Europe, North America and the advanced countries of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East is now saturated. As a result, the industry has witnessed fierce competition among mobile operators and negative revenue growth. The industry has entered a phase of consolidation in recent years and we have seen several exits, mergers and acquisitions around the world.
However, the number of mobile operators active in almost all countries is quite good (on average 3 operators per country). However, the exponential growth and adoption of OTT services, from WhatsApp to YouTube to Vimeo, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, have left operators in an unprecedented situation.
- More and more commonplace network services, reducing margins
- Operators forced to invest more in their network to meet growing demand
And as we see, Operators face the following challenges:
- Reduced margin that does not allow them to innovate
- They hardly can offer the OTT of consumer choice – it changes so frequently
- Even partnerships with OTTs are not really effective enough for operators
- Partnering with OTTs is not a long-term solution
A ranking of the top ten players on the basis of revenue or number of subscribers or profitability is not really important when their survival can be easily questioned by any OTT startup. Still, I can tell you a few operators who are facing these challenges very well or who have deployed their strategic efforts in a laudable manner.
3. What is the status of 2G, 3G, 4G or 5G in the world? In your opinion, what are or should be the operators’ priorities with regard to future growth?
LTE has become the operator’s priority program to enable consumers to take full advantage of mobile Internet. The current priority for operators is to reach the full potential of 4G LTE when they have already started working on 5G and beyond. Africa is, however, far behind the rest of the world. Many African countries have a lower LTE footprint and adoption. While smartphone penetration has exceeded 50% on the continent, this exaggerates its importance as most countries in the region operate on legacy 2G and 3G speeds, which do not allow video streaming or anything else. beyond basic web browsing.
4. Where do operators spend the most? What is slowing them down?
Most of the investments are focused on expanding, modernizing and improving the capacity of the network. The exponential growth in demand for data is observed; however, operators have failed to become the primary beneficiary despite billions of investments in the 4G network over the past 10 years.
As for “what’s slowing them down”, it’s huge expectations and commensurate effort and capital that would be required to make customers happy as a whole. And why not, the 21st century is all that. Still, remember that operators around the world continue to spend a substantial portion of their profits to make things work.
5. What excites operators?
As in previous years, operators will continue to invest in 4G and 4G + mobile networks. Not because they’re excited, but the exponential growth in data traffic is forcing them to do so. This new investment in 4G and 4G + meets two needs, increasing network coverage and improving capacity.
6. What is the analyst’s perspective on the direction the industry could take in the next 2-3 or 5 years?
As individuals, society, industry and governments look to the future with more efficient digital tools, advanced technologies and automation like never before, telecommunications players must lead the charge. Seizing opportunities as early as possible before large-scale penetration will be the key to meeting the expectations and future needs of consumers.
The analyst presented a four-pillar program that can help operators become the primary beneficiaries of their network investment, improve their position along the value chain, and maximize their return on investment.
7. And finally, a word on the pandemic: how do you think the industry reacted?
Covid-19 has impacted the global mobile phone industry; however, the impact is less severe than on the economy in general. In fact, many developing countries, where the lack of fixed telephony infrastructure makes mobile the default means of accessing the Internet, have experienced unexpected growth in mobile revenues. For example, mobile income in India grew by more than 17% in 2020, while real GDP decreased by more than 10%. Telecom operators today have a multifaceted business model. While there has been a mixed impact on the overall revenue of telecom operators, there is also general consistency in the impact concentrated on a loss of roaming activity (reduction in trips) and a decrease in roaming activity. handset upgrades.
