Competition to Collaboration: Analyzing the Wholesale Industry Landscape Post COVID-19

Tuesday, August 25, 2020
12:00 PM EST | 9:00 AM PST

COVID-19 has caused significant impact on the functioning of almost all industries across the world and telecom industry is not an exception. The ongoing shift to remote working is driving the demand for networking infrastructure and connectivity.

The year 2020 might see a decline in telecoms revenue by almost 3.4% across developed markets due to the impact of this pandemic. The wholesale market, on the other hand, is subject to a variety of market dynamics and expected to witness a 3% growth in 2020. International roaming might go sluggish though with a steep decline of over 80% during lockdown periods and might not fully recover in 2021 too. This is due to global travel restrictions. Voice traffic is on a rise by around 50% during lockdowns, and interconnect revenue is expected to rise by 15% in 2020 only to return to pre-COVID times in 2021.

The webinar will discuss the possibilities the industry holds and how wholesale carriers can reinvent through collaboration, innovation and resilience to survive this period.
