Research and Markets has announced the addition of 2006 Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband in Europe Report - Benelux Countries
to their offering.
The Benelux countries are Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg, all of which are small countries by European standards, yet leaders in technology use. This report looks at trends and developments in telecommunications, mobile, Internet, broadband, digital TV and converging media including VoIP, VoD and IPTV developments in the Benelux countries.
This latest Benelux Annual Publication, profiles the three countries which have been among the most advanced in Europe in the use and development of telecommunications services. With small populations sophisticated in the use of advanced technologies, these countries also benefit from an infusion of people and capital investment from their larger neighbours, as well as the infrastructural developments arising from the several EU administrative centres established in the region.
The Benelux countries offer some of Europe's strongest contrasts in the telecom sectors, including Europe's highest mobile penetration level adjacent to one of the lowest, and a nation rich in advanced broadband development neighbouring a small country struggling to keep up. Digital TV is widely available, and regional switchover from analogue transmission is already underway.
This report reviews the status of GSM and 3G mobile in these small but central and important countries during 2005, and assesses the status of digital TV and converging media. It also looks ahead to the latest developments in DSL, cable and fibre technology in 2006 and beyond, and analyses the potential for developing triple play services based on these faster networks.
Companies featured in the report include:
-- Colt Telecom NV
-- Scarlet (formerly KPN Belgium)
-- Versatel Telecom
-- P&T Luxembourg
-- RTL Group
-- SES Astra
