Welcome to our June 2011 edition of Analysys Mason Quarterly
In this edition we cover a range of issues, challenges and opportunities in telecoms and media. 'Broadband for all' is a key theme: noting that achievement of this goal will rely on a combination of wired and wireless broadband technologies, we discuss the benefits of using spectrum in bands below 1GHz to support wireless broadband, and consider whether coverage obligations are required to encourage roll-out. We also discuss some of the issues that are critical to the achievement of the Digital Agenda for Europe.
In other articles, we discuss industry transformation, looking at how traditional and emerging media delivery models might come together, as well as the implications of industry tie-ups such as that between Microsoft and Nokia. Finally, alternative industry structures are considered in articles on the rationale behind MVNOs and the outsourcing of mobile network operations. As always, we hope you enjoy these articles and we welcome your feedback. Janette Stewart, Senior Manager
