Competitive pressure in the global fixed telephone industry has been rather constant, with no significant changes in the market share spread since 2012. However, telecommunication providers across the globe have seen a continuous trend towards “on the edge” commoditization as ARPA spread globally decreased. A vast majority of countries remain differentiated for now. However, ARPA pressures have driven the competitive intensity higher and a continued trend towards commoditization.
Strategy&’s annual commoditization tracker analyzes the state of play in markets across the globe by looking at two key metrics: changes in the spread between fixed operators with the largest and smallest share of each market’s subscribers, and in the spread between those with the highest and lowest average revenue per account.
