To be or not to be – The future of the telco business model

The future of the telecommunication landscape in 2030. A scenario approach

The pace of change in the telecommunications industry is accelerating: the boom years are either over or coming to an end very fast. The tech sector has seen enormous disruptive changes affect social life, politics and business. The accelerating pace of change makes predictions hard, so we adopted a more holistic approach – and we now invite you to travel with us into four scenarios for the telecommunications industry in 2030.

Our scenario approach does not aim to predict the most likely outcome, but to illustrate what could plausibly happen in the telco world and how market players might deal with the many uncertainties along the way.

Four scenarios include:

  • The engineer strikes back
  • The new wholesale truth
  • The virtual telco
  • A vendor brand
