Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fk58vn/spain_telecom_inte) has announced the addition of the "Spain Telecom Intelligence Report - Regulatory Changes Drive Telecom Market Growth Despite Recession" report to their offering.
Due to the economic recession and volatility of the euro exchange rate, the market will contract in dollar terms in 2012 and 2013 before rebounding in 2014.
However, there are a number of telecom sectors that we expect to experience continuous growth over the forecast period, including fixed VoIP and mobile data.
Increased adoption of broadband and regulatory changes in Spain will create new opportunities for alternative operators in the fixed broadband, IPTV and VoIP sectors, according to a new report from Pyramid Research.
Spain: Regulatory Changes Drive Telecom Market Growth Despite Recession offers a precise profile of the country's telecommunications, media and technology sectors based on proprietary data from Pyramid's research in the market. It provides a detailed competitive analysis of both the fixed and mobile sectors, tracks the market shares of technologies and services and monitors the introduction and spread of new technologies.
In 2012, the Spanish government and the regulator, the Telecommunications Market Commission (CMT), adopted a number of measures to boost competition and encourage investments in telecom infrastructure despite the economic problems that the country is currently experiencing, says Pyramid Research Analyst, Dr. Ewa Romaniuk-Calkowska. That includes further cuts in mobile termination rates, new portability regulations, changes in the wholesale prices for broadband and unbundling of the copper pair. Alternative operators are taking advantage of the new regulation with regard to local loop unbundling and wholesale rates to increase their presence outside of the large cities and densely populated areas. They offer very competitive prices that resonate well with price-conscious customers. For instance, Jazztel rates for ADSL starts at $19.60 with a 10 percent promotional discount and the guarantee that the price will not increase for the next two years, she explains.
