  • Industry analysts define the industry as companies that operate, maintain or provide access to facilities for the transmission of voice and/or data via a wired and/or a wireless network. Industry analysts place telecommunications in either a Wired or Wireless bucket, using these sub industries as basis for their analysis.For the purpose of our presentation we are defining the Australian telco industry as a domestic market; we will be touching on companies that are part of regional or global compny but our focus will be on concentrating on their presence in the Australian market.Firstly, the wired telecommunications industry is currently declining at almost 9% YoY, where revenues sit at $11.8bn and profit at $2.7bn (Source: IBIS World Report (May 2013)) – a market in our view that is saturated with products where innovation has been lacking for some time. Secondly, the wireless telecommunications industry is currently illustrating a 4.3% growth, where revenues sit at $20.8bn but profit again at $2.7bn Source: IBIS World Report (May 2013)) - where technology continues to advance at a fast rate, facilitating a proliferation of new products and services.Quite simply, we regard this view to be too basic to reflect a very complex and interwoven industry such as the Australian telecommunications industry.but concentrating on their presence in the Australian market only
  • The Telecommunications industry landscape is changing. We’ve looked at the environment and there are a range of factors that affect the industry. Factors which are of low influence are; Economic: - WIRELESS: Household incomes are increasing and people are spending more money on value added mobile phone features. - ALL: The Australian population is increasing - ISP: Businesses desire for E-commerce business services. Environment:- There is uncertainty about future power costs as the government embarks on removing the carbon tax.- Telco’s and handset manufacturers need to make provision for the disposal of old handsets. Legal:- WIRELESS: Competitors need a spectrum licence with allows operators to provide mobile services within a determined geographic area. - WIRLESS: Companies to acquire a licence from ACMA.- WIRLESS: Competitors to adhere to the guidelines set by the ACCC.- WIRED: ACCC regulation of pricing of line rental access by Telstra and the pricing of mobile phone calls.- WIRED: ACCC sets price of wholesale line rental and unconditional local loop access fee.- WIRED: Industry became self-regulated in 1997 with the introduction of the Telecommunications Act.- ISP: ISP’s providing a fixed line Internet access service must pay Telstra a line sharing service cost.- ISP: Adhere to ACCC guidelines The environmental factors that are going to heavily influence and impact the industry in the future are Political, Social and Technology. Political: - WIRELESS: The Government owns the spectrum and sells it at a determined set price.- The introduction of the NBN.- The NBN will provide faster fixed line wired services, PAYTV, data and international calls.- WIRED Government policies such as the universal service obligation influence the spread of the telecommunications industry. They subsidise services to regional and remote Australia to ensure they have telecommunications access.- WIRED: Legislation will ensure NBN remains Australian owned.- ISP: The NBN will benefit ISP’s due to the speed of the network and subsequently the ISP’s offering.   Social:- WIRELES: Generation Y to be early adopters and major beneficiaries of wireless technology.- ALL: Consumes desire for constant connectivity.- ISP: Consumers desire for online entertainment; movies, games, Internet browsing.- 67% of mobile users have a smartphone Technology:- WIRELSS: Consumers are upgrading their 3G phones and broadband plans due to the introduction of digital reader devices and smartphones. - WIRELESS: In the next 5 years there will be an increase of wireless data card subscriptions (eg: Dongles) due to the 4G networks- WIRELESS: Wireless infrastructure enables voice (VOIP), data services, and radio and television relays.- WIRELESS: Smartphone revolution driving wireless growth – mobile applications; online banking, GPS mapping and video streaming.- WIRELESS: New smartphone devices with larger screens allow consumers to watch live feeds (sport / movies), video calling and Internet browsing. - ISP: The NBN will allow ISP to deliver faster products and larger download data limits.- Increase in VOIP and IPTV demand.- WIRED: Faster wireless services (probably porters substitution point), VOIP. Social demand and technological advancements continue to put pressure on new growth. The NBN is also a political / disruption factor.  Sources: IBIS World; Wired Telecommunications Network operation in Australia Industry report – May 2013 IBIS World; Wireless Telecommunications Carriers in Australia Industry report – September 2013 IBIS World; Internet Service providers in Australia Industry report – May 2013  
  • PSTN is declining. Coverage and Reliability have been the key success factors. PSTN industry has been a duopoly for over a decade. Most of Australia was covered by the two major players and the competition for market share is primarily between the two major players. The market share of other competitors is almost insignificant.Suppliers: Major operators have built and maintaining their own network on which they provide various services. For smaller service providers, supplier power is high as they are dependent on Telstra/Optus network. For network equipment suppliers of the core network infrastructure, the power is low because market share is controlled by two big players and they have a large number of suppliers to choose from. LOWBuyers: Switching cost is high for businesses using PSTN. The demand has no effect on price due to regulations. Buyers are ‘stuck’ with line rentals, call charges and a low choice of value added services (voice mail etc). In emergencies, fixed phones are believed to be more reliable than mobile phones. A high number of substitutes in the form of VOIP, mobile calls. LOWNew entrants: Other service providers are dependent on Telstra and Optus for the network and therefore overpowered by these big players. A new entrant building their own copper network now is unlikely although there may be attempts to use the profitable model ‘build+wholesale+retail’ by companies with high investment capacity. LOWSubstitutes: Internet and Mobile pretty much make PSTN redundant in many scenarios except in few such as very high reliability requirement such as medical, government etc HIGHRivalry: The rivalry is high between the two competitors but overall rivalry amongst all players in the market was low. LOWIn this picture of the telecom industry, as an established telecom company you may stay in business because of your heavy investment in network but there won't be many new entrants in PSTN with vanilla 'voice call' offerings.There is definitely no growth in this market and although ARPU is steady,overall profits are declining rapidly as customers have switched to other substitutes such as VOIP and mobile phone calls.Profitable for incumbents but unattractive for new entrants
  • Internet changed the dynamics. If PSTN was about connecting people, internet allowed people to connect and stay in touch in more than one way (emails, messenger, VOIP calls)As the telecommunication companies applied innovation and leveraged their biggest assets, their networks, to provide data connections i.e. the internet. Speed, bandwidth became key success factors. The internet impacted speed of business globally and impacted the telecommunication industry itself. Supply chains, distribution channels were reshaped as internet created new communication channels.Suppliers: Supplier power higher for the network owners such as Telstra and Optus from the perspective of smaller service providers. For the suppliers of network equipment the power decreased further due to globalisation, new designs of components influenced by new software and commoditisation of components. HIGHERBuyers: Buyer power is relatively higher with more choice of internet services, data plans from a wider range of providers from low cost to premium services. Switching internet provider is relatively easy for residential customers but still not very easy for business customers. HIGHERNew entrants: There has been increase in number of smaller new ISPs but a decrease in the number of large-medium size ISPs due to acquisitions.Definitely lower barriers of entry for service provides and a range of services to offer from plain VOIP calling cards to premium broadband or cable connections. HIGHERSubstitutes: There is no real alternative to internet. LOWERRivalry: Increased rivalry as customers switching from big providers to new service providers for better price, better customer service. HIGHERThere are a number of opportunities for new entrants, many options to differentiate on and better chances of survival due to growing market size.
  • Mobile disrupted. PSTN connected people, Internet provided them many ways to stay in touch and mobile allowed them to be connected at anytime and from anywhere (almost).The major telecommunication companies attempted to supplement but in some instances cannibalised their own PSTN network and fixed line internet by investing in mobile networks and by providing mobile services. The mobility was a great value add to the telecom offering. Mobile technology also opened up the telecommunication industry to whole range of new entrants.Suppliers: Big players have invested in wireless network infrastructure and extended market share by cannibalising their own fixed line products. HIGHERBuyers: Buyer power has increased further putting pressure on price. High churn rate, short product lifecycle is making buyers are demanding more innovation and more new services more frequently. HIGHERNew entrants: Lower entry barriers with more opportunities to target niche market or compete on price. HIGHERSubstitutes: Partial substitutes in the form of free wi-fi zones but with less convenient (need to authenticate with every new wi-fi), high speed fixed internet could challenge high speed wireless network on media streaming type of services but no real substitute for mobility. LOWERRivalry: Higher due to more new entrants and disruptive trends, diversification of computer manufacturers into telco industry – Apple, Google etc, and media companies too. HIGHERMobile explosive growth has slowed down and there is a focus on innovation in high-speed, high capacity network to compete against the challenge of high speed fixed internet. Demand is attractive for competitors – but can limit margins
  • Speaker Notes:-Government policies and its influences in the industryFor the last twenty years, Australian telecommunications policy has focused on promoting private sector network and service competition at every level and the Commonwealth has progressively sought to exit its remaining Telstra shareholding. However, the Australian Government is now re-entering the telecommunications sector through NBN Co. These things highlight again that political factors and government regulations continue to play an important role in shaping this industry.NBN board had a major restructuring with Mr.Ziggy,who had worked with both Telstra and Optus ,being appointed as the Chairman of the NBN Co. Now with board undergoing a strategic review and analysis of the project, and re negotiating with Telstra for FTTN (Fibre To node) policy, Mr.Ziggy’s leadership skills will be put to test.Speed and bandwidth of NBN will revolutionise the industryProvide opportunities for content providers, TV broadcasters to use NBN infrastructure to deliver all entertainment video content in HD format and interact directly with the consumers. .NBN will accelerate the growth of media content.In home, video phones will begin rivalry with skype and google talk. Ability of resellers to purchase and utilise NBN infrastructure will attract more companies into the market.This will bring in new players to compete within industry.http://www.fool.com.au/2013/10/08/more-customers-joining-4g-ahead-of-nbn-rollout/ConsConsumer/Business Uptake of NBNPolitical issues delaying rollout over an extended timeFor the industry to successfully utilise all benefits of NBN, they must be able to migrate people towards NBN. There must be more applications that require high data usage, which cannot be satisfied by existing systems, hence pushing people towards NBN.the possible disruption in transitioning services and customers to new technologies, the uncertainty around political changes and the complex nature of the roll out over an extended period of time, are all issues that could have detrimental impacts.
  • OptusOwned and managed by Singtel Group, Optus is the company’s largest subsidiary.Optus includes Virgin Mobile (MVNO) in their portfolio. With 27.5% marketshare (installed base), Optus and Virgin are the 2nd largest mobile network provider in Australia. There current installed base has increased 2pts in the past 12months, although a fall in revenues indicates that ARPU has decreased driven by the hypercompetition and price wars.In terms of share of sales, there is a duopoly for Optus with Apple and Samsung accounting for two thirds of the total business. This indicated strong supplier power, which proves to be difficult for Optus. These companies display ‘bullying’ tactics, which effect the subsidization and profit margin for Optus.The cash cow for Optus is the mobile business unit which accounts for 64% of revenue is driven by the mobile business unit indicating that In FY13 Optus added 306K new postpaid customers adding 2% to their postpaid business YoY. Overall Optus has seen declines in revenue and NPAT YoY. Optus corporate have qualified this loss as a result of operating restructures and group consolidation. After launching 4G network in late 2012, the carrier has seen significant sales of LTE handsets accounting for just under 800K sales (new and upgrades).In May 2013, SingTel put up its Australian subsidiary Optus' satellite business for sale, soliciting offers in excess of AUD2bn (US$1.9bn), in order to help finance its expansion plans. However, the fact that Optus' satellite business operates key facilities for the Australian military is likely to mean that any deal will be subject to close scrutiny by the government.Overall, Optus is focused on driving breakthroughs in customer experience. This is certainly a hygiene factor in this industry, where customer service is a gimme. Singtel made significant improvements to their sales and distribution channel to improve the retail experience for their customers. In Australia, they implemented a new retail strategy that involved rationalising several third-party distribution partnerships which resulted in the termination of the reseller relationships with Allphones and Telechoice. This is a major change for the brand, allowing them to fully focus on core Optus-branded activity, giving them more direct control over the customer experience. Optus is also building networks for digital services having upgraded more than 4,000 3G sites to deliver faster data speeds and more consistent in-building coverage for customers. Thirdly, Optus are capturing growth and revenue from mobile data. Teleco businesses are transforming from traditional carriers of voice services into modern digital businesses. To capture the revenue opportunities driven by the proliferation of mobile devices and customers’ increasing usage of data, Optus introduced simplified mobile data price plans. In addition they also reviewed their handset subsidies, implemented simplified and tiered price plans as well as streamlined bundle offers to improve the yield and profitability of data services and sustain continual network investments. Last year, SingTel went through a significant reorganisation. Twelve months on, the new structure leverages their global scale by establishing shared procurement services, as well as combining networks and IT functions, and offering digital initiatives. They still continue to explore opportunities for additional savings by including their regional mobile associates in joint procurement arrangements for items including handsets and network infrastructure.   It is evident that Optus is focused on the core customer experience to defend the base.
  • VodafoneMajor strategic backing from UK’s the Vodafone Group (50%) and Hong Kong’s Hutchison Whampoa (50%). Includes Crazy Johns (MVNO) in their portfolio.In June 2009 it was announced that Vodafone Australia has been acquired by Hutchison Telecommunications in an effort to expand their marketshare and network profile. The company is known as VHA, however consumer facing brand is Vodafone Australia.Both networks now continue to operate under the one brand with 3 Mobile was officially ‘turned off’ in August 2013 with all remaining customers migrating across to Vodafone.Vodafone has 18.9% marketshare with massive declines YoY. Since the start of the year, Vodafone has seen 550K customers church representing a service revenue loss of almost $300M.Vodafone has seen huge churns in their customer base driven by their network issues and lack of investment into their service infrastructure. Former CEO Nigel Dews was held responsible for the decline in their marketshare and in 2012, Bill Morrow will brought into the organisation to take over the reigns of this struggling organisation. Bill is recognised as one of the global telecommunications industry's most experienced executives. He is the former Chief Executive of Clearwire Incorporated and was previously Chief Executive of the Pacific Gas and Electric Company. He is a former Europe Chief Executive with Vodafone Group and has run the Group's businesses in Japan and the UK. He, together with a new leadership team are tasked with changing the business’ course. They endeavor to meet this challenge through a blend of product improvements, internal realignment, stronger customer engagement, consistency in communication, and brand smarts.As a leader, Bill is said to be approachable and encourages open communication two-way communication with the team. He defines his turn-around strategy as being built from the bottom up with the customer at the core. Since his appointment there have been three major restructures, with over 25% of their workforce made redundant. Overall, Vodafone continues to invest in programs to stop the bleeding of their base. Accelerate network upgrade and expansion plans said to be worth $1B over 2 years to combat connection issues that continue to plague the carrier. This is continually supported with heavy marketing investment to repair the brand’s image. Vodafone also launched a ‘money back guarentee’ offer, where customers can cancel their contracts if they weren’t satisfied with their network coverage.Launched 4G LTE Service in June 2013, almost two years behind Telstra.Continue with integration of Vodafone and 3 Business Units – Operational Consolidation including retail stores, network and operations.Engage is aggressive cost cutting efforts including the closure of their MVNO Crazy Johns.Consolidated contact centre to Mumbai and HobartWhile VHA has tried to quickly resolve its network issues by overhauling its infrastructure, the operator has yet to demonstrate a clear strategy to prevent further customer churn.
