Research and Markets has announced the addition of 2006 Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband in Europe Report - Germany and Austria
to their offering.
This report covers Germany and Austria, two key and influential European telecom markets. The report looks at trends and developments in telecommunications, mobile, Internet, broadband, digital TV and converging media including VoIP, VoD and IPTV developments in both Germany and Austria.
This latest Germany and Austria Annual Publication, profiles two countries which share a common language and border, and host telecom providers with an established presence in both markets. Yet these countries offer some of Europe's strongest contrasts in the telecom sectors. Germany has Europe's largest telecom market, while Austria's has one of the smallest yet most advanced and progressive. Austria's mobile and broadband penetration is far ahead of Germany's, while its extensive cable footprint has placed it in a more promising position to accommodate the emerging triple play services such as iTV, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Video-on-Demand (VoD) on both the cable and Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) platforms into 2006 and beyond.
Digital TV is widely available in both countries, with the Berlin region one of the first in Europe to switch off analogue transmissions. This report presents a concise overview of sector liberalisation and privatisation, and the development of product offerings for both mobile and broadband. It provides essential statistics for broadband and mobile operators, highlighting sector and technological developments, and the emergence of media convergence and triple play offerings in these two important markets.
Companies featured in the report include:
-- Deutsche Telekom
-- Mannesmann Arcor
-- BT Global Services
-- Telekom Austria
-- United Telecom Austria (UTA)
-- United Pan-Europe Communications (UPC)
