New Videonet report considers next steps for service providers, beyond broadband

Share on

Even ultra-fast broadband will become commoditised, so communications service providers (CSPs) need to think about how they differentiate themselves and where they make money in future. Videonet has just published a new report that argues they need to look towards connectivity+ services like premium managed Wi-Fi and family management, and place themselves at the centre of the smart home, whether offering customer care bots or security cameras.

The report explores the opportunities ahead in the ‘beyond broadband’ marketplace, and the operator transformation needed to capitalise on them, including a focus on cybersecurity, a data-driven culture, and agile device and service development. The report concludes that fixed-line providers are well-placed for the journey through the smart customer home all the way to the smart city, and it explains why.

The report covers:

  • The competitive landscape
  • Service provider strengths
  • Connectivity+: The path to transformation
  • Preparing for the smart home
  • Extracting value
  • Business models and partnerships
  • Connectivity+ revenue models
  • Increase in customer longevity

  • Succeeding in the smart home marketplace
