"The Net and the Internet - Emerging Markets and Policies"

Over the past three decades, telecommunications markets have undergone substantial changes due to phenomena such as the emergence of mobile telephony and its gradual convergence with fixed; but also the convergence with media and IT markets and the ongoing transition towards IP-based Internet platforms powered by broadband communications. As a result, the boundaries between these previously separated markets have blurred to such an extent that today, players originating in different economic sectors compete for the same customers along a single, integrated value chain: incumbent telcos compete with nomadic players, such as Skype or Google, and with emerging cloud providers; at the same time, application providers are eroding the revenues of upstream players such as broadcasters and content owners.
