Premeshin Naidoo addresses how telcos need to evolve for new markets.

In this instalment of the 2019 Absa Insights Series Premeshin Naidoo, Regional Head Sector: Global Clients, Absa CIB leads a panel discussion with Bora Varliyagci, Chief Executive of Digitalthings and Juanita Clark, Chief Executive, FTTX Council Africa.

Video highlights:

  • Telcos are moving into different verticals because of their exposure to other markets as communications providers.
  • Many services are commoditised, which is necessitating the evolution of telco operators.
  • Margins will get tighter as infrastructure costs rise. The natural result is independent infrastructure owners and operators who are taking ownership of infrastructure and core assets and leveraging their independent status to drive economies of scale.
