Abstract - Central and Eastern European Telcos — Beyond Telecommunications in 2016 | Research | IDC CEMA

Synopsis

This IDC study focuses on the revenues generated by the incumbent CEE telecommunications operators from non-telecommunications services. It examines the non-core business areas that telecommunications operators have entered, and evaluates how successful these initiatives have been.

"The fact that telecommunications operators sell financial services, energy, electronic appliances, and even household maintenance services is not news. The real news is that these companies have started to change from passive providers of utility-type services to dynamic large-scale entrepreneurs able to quickly seize opportunities in any market." — Senior Program Manager Kresimir Alic, Telecoms and Networking, IDC CEMA
