The Telco-Video-Data convergence, Fixed line or Wireless!
With the massive technological developments, high speed changes in the industry. A similar trend is developing in the Malayan Federation Telecom industry. It's showing an elegant way now to finance, develop leading edge infrastructure, giving the industry an edge and flexibility to adjust to the trends, technological breakthroughs!|
In the old day, Telekom Malaysia Berhad was developed to provide a comprehensive communication company based on the simple Telegram, and later Fixed Line Telephony! It was a simple "Voice" transmission enterprise!
Then came beeper, Fascimile, Computers, Wireless Mobile phone, broadband, Wimax and now Convergence Voice, Video, DataTechnologies!
As happen in the Electricity Generation industry, The Telco industry is slowly evolving into a massive flexible, technological adaptable organization! The Telecom industry now has 4 major Distribution-Retail enterprises. In Malaya, it's the Fixed line monopoly of the original Telekom Berhad. In it's wake, it has created 3 big retail enterprises in form of Axiata Berhad, Digi Berhad and Maxis Berhad!
The 4 marketing company now has national coverage and can provide cost plus services to the Malayan consumers!
(Take Note,Even Singapore has copied the Malayan model - as it soon became obvious, that it's a much more COST EFFECTIVE system - Malayan telco subcribers probably pays one of the lowest rates in the world for Telco services! And it does seem some of China's infrastructure developments also has roots in the same Thatcher and Mahathir Administration innovation!)
Comes in more Private Enterprise contractors in Malayan Federation!
Time Telekom Berhad does the contract fiber optic data transmission systems, while Red Tone Berhad, Green Packet Berhad does the same in the Wimax sector! Each enterprise now has revenue of around Rmb 180 to Rmb260 million a year, but the infrastructure investment was in the region of Rmb 7 billion.
Now comes the cost of the 4G mobile convergence telco system.
There is 12 million mobile phone subscribers in the Federation. To invest in infrastructure to service 300,000 units required an investment by YTL Telecoms Berhad a total of Rmb 5 billion. Imagine the cost of providing infrastructure to all the 12 million subscribers would be Rmb 200 billion! - a massive amount for a small "China province size" nation of 28 million people!
We watch how the industry adjust in the most cost effective manner, using the rich revenue merchants!
