Future of Telcos - phone companies, next-generation telecommunications, winners and losers in post COVID global shakeout, mega-mergers, controlling the world's bandwidth and smartphone platforms, e-commerce and mobile payments - keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Telcos Keynotes, Smartphones,Omnichannel

Telcos had a massive boost from the COVID pandemic.  I work with many of the world's largest telcos. They all benefitted hugely from instant shift towards virtual work, virtual social life, virtual entertainment and virtual leisure. Huge increase in spending on personal bandwidth, increased use of personal devices. Huge increase in corporate spending on enterprise wide virtual working tools, upgrades of video conferencing equipment, upgrades in bandwidth with increased dependence on video

If we ever realised our total dependence on high bandwidth, it was at the moment that the world plunged into lockdown. Internet access or speed was no longer the issue, rather continuous, uninterrupted high bandwidth to allow high quality video links. However, the telco industry faced fundamental issues before COVID, and these issues remain.

Over 90% of all web traffic is now video in many developed nations - COVID just accelerated a long trend.  It is already the case in the UK that BBC iPlayer, NetFlix and YouTube alone account for more than 60% of the nation’s web traffic. A single 2-hour video is equivalent to a hundred million emails, or days of voice calls. So forget charging for voice or anything else – costs are dwarfed by streaming video. Data on mobiles will increase 1000 fold in the next 5 years, on 50 billion mobile devices connected to 5G, running at 10gps or higher. That means an entire high-definition movie will download in less than 3 seconds.  So telcos will be forced to focus on new kinds of business, for example cloud services for larger companies.

Future of Telcos, e-Wallets, payments and FinTech innovation. How Telcos will become Banks and why old Telco business models are broken - Telco Keynote

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Telcos Keynotes, Smartphones,Omnichannel

Video of Telco keynote at Google premier global event - Digital Payments and Telcos

I often give keynotes at Telco conferences on why Telco old business models are broken: mobile banking and digital payments.  Why so many Telcos are entering the world of banks with e-Wallets and future of TelcoBanks. I have worked with many of the world's largest telcos and banks - so what of their future?

In theory, Telcos should be at the very heart of the digital revolution:  after all, they provide all the bandwidth we use to access the web - whether on smartphones or by traditional broadband at home or at work.  They also provide the handsets themselves.  And they have the ability to track people to within one or two metres, all the time, using signals from the mobile devices they have in their pockets. In addition, their networks handle all our online payments, our diary, our email and all our web searches.  Yes in many cases most of that data is encrypted, but you would be shocked to see the full extent of data that Telcos are usually able to pick up - the same is true of owners of websites you visit.

Yet the truth is that very few Telcos are really taking advantage of their potential - in particular, the data they have about your location.
