European operators Convergence Strategies
This posting continues on the convergence topic but from different player (i.e. Operator) perspective. Trigger for this posting are two separate announcements from two European telecom giants. Telecom Italia confirmed that it is restructurings its telecom business into two separate units one focusing on fixed business the other on Mobile .Where as at the same time worlds largest mobile operator Vodafone announced that it is teaming with BT (British Telecom) to provide fixed broadband service under its brand to its UK customers .Idea behind this posting is to try to figure out underlying strategies behind these companies.
