Operator business revenue is declining in Europe, forcing operators to balance cost-cutting and investment

Operator business revenue is declining in Europe, forcing operators to balance cost-cutting and investment

March 5, 2020

Our recently updated Western European business forecasts estimate that operator revenue from basic voice and data connectivity services will fall by 5% between 2019 and 2024. Operators face some challenging decisions and will need to balance cutting costs from traditional services while also investing in growth services such as ICT. Even where these trade-offs are managed well, operators' revenue may decline in real terms, and an increased focus on ICT is likely to result in lower margins.

This podcast outlines the scale of the challenge facing operators and highlights some of the strategies being adopted in response to market conditions.
