"The threat from OTT services is having a negative impact on revenue growth. Data revenue will increase, but this will be more than offset by the decline in traditional revenue."
Telecoms service revenue peaked in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) in 2012 – 5 years after it did so in Western Europe (WE) – before beginning to decline. This 5-year lag will be even shorter for the revenue streams – messaging and non-handset mobile broadband – that are declining because of smartphone adoption. Smartphone take-up has been rapid in CEE, accelerating the rate at which over-the-top (OTT) services have replaced SMS usage, and driving the replacement of USB modems with tethering – trends that increasingly closely mirror those in WE.
