In 2012 total mobile service market revenue declined 6% over 2011 in US dollar terms, in line with the regional level, notes Daniele Tricarico, Analyst at Pyramid Research. To boost growth, Telecom Italia and Vodafone are looking at converged offers combining 4G mobile broadband and fiber broadband. Operators should consider partnerships to rapidly expand their service portfolio, such as in the case of the partnerships between Sky respectively with Fastweb and Telecom Italia, he notes.
