The telecommunications landscape is changing throughout the world in both developed and underdeveloped countries.  Most countries have at least one goal in common: access to reliable and affordable communications services including voice but more importantly, broadband and/or  wireless access.  Not only is it necessary for citizens to be able to reach family members, police, health assistance and other essential services, but more importantly, broadband and wireless access has never been more important for economic development.  The more access, the greater the chance for economic growth.

In the United States, landline phones are becoming a thing of the past while the traditional telecom carriers face increased demand for data and voice services, and 5G wireless networks are being developed and tested.  The Internet of things continues to grow as more and more products become wired, and this will put even more pressure for greater access to networks.  Thirty-Ninth Street Strategies can help your company develop new revenue streams.  Our market research can tell you what consumers want so you develop and expand products that are in demand.  We can also help you understand the differences and nuances in various states as utility commissions adopt different policies.

In Europe, the European Commission continues to prioritize the Digital Single Market so there is an integrated access across the 28 current members of the E.U., while the dozen or so European countries that are not in the E.U. face their own challenges at home and integrating with the rest of Europe.  Thirty-Ninth Street Strategies can help telecoms adapt their business to the changing single market, identify potential new business strategies and help determine what consumers in the E.U.  and Europe want.

Asia may offer the biggest potential for telecom companies as many of the countries are still building out their telecom infrastructure.  Nearly 70% of south Asia remains primarily rural and many of these areas lack basic telephone services, broadband, and wireless access.  Companies operating in Asia deal with regulated and deregulated markets, and each presents unique challenges.  In regulated markets, monopolies and duopolies exist that continue to hamper competition and reliable service.  In deregulated markets, infrastructure buildout continues yet there are still problems with basic services, including long distance.  Thirty-Ninth Street Strategies can help you understand the telecom polices in the 60-plus countries that make up the ASEAN/ Pacific Rim region, work with you to develop business strategies that take advantage of growing public/private partnerships and the on-going infrastructure buildout in rural areas, and provide you with valuable market research that will help you maximize profits by knowing what potential customers want.
