COVID-19 Impact on Telecom Services – Thematic Research



Summary



The COVID-19 outbreak has now spread across the world, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. This report discusses the impact of the virus on leading companies in the telecom services sector.



Key Highlights



– National telecom operators have had to juggle several roles to provide support to governments and customers during the COVID-19 crisis. They have been giving subscribers extra data and speed boosts to make the stay-at-home experience more bearable.

– They have also been expected to provide extra capacity, set up emergency teams to maintain network quality for critical use cases, and provide insight into peoples’ movements in COVID-19-affected areas.

– COVID-19 is turning operators into multi-utilities, providing a service (internet connectivity) that is now as important to the public as electricity, gas, water, or sewage, whilst simultaneously serving national security interests.

– The challenge for operators is to balance this new role against their current go-to-market and competitive profiles in the age of COVID-19, and beyond.
