The European Consumer Telecoms Strategies subscription service aims to answer this essential question. This means tracking and forecasting the evolution of the market for core telecoms services in a changing marketplace, and understanding how these can best be complemented with new services to create new revenue streams and strengthen core services. It means understanding how telcos can best provide and communicate value to their customers, to remain relevant and build customer relationships. And how taking on the role of an enabler in the digital marketplace — enabling customers' digital lives and enabling other digital service providers to better reach an audience — will help telcos find balance between fighting a losing battle against new competitors and fading into the background as a bit pipe.
