The age of the supernet

The Business has
a very interesting article
on the consolidation of the US telco’s and
looks at why they are doing it.  Whilst doing my presentation back in Amsterdam to the Network Service
business line (70 people) I told them then that the likes of the SBC and
AT&T merger would lead to companies not competing against other telco’s but
against companies such as Time Warner. The new war will be for the quadruple
play and it’ll be between the telco’s, the cable companies, the studios with
their vast back catalogues of content along with the mobile operators too. As
the article says, there are two many players involved in the four (TV, Internet, Voice
and   Mobile)
businesses that make up the quadruple play, so we’ll expect to see some more
casualties.
