Singapore mobile users must be given access to OTT services | ZDNet

Singapore mobile users must be given access to OTT services | ZDNet | Mobile & Technology | Scoop.it

MNOCountry's ICT regulator declares that mobile consumers must be given access to all legitimate online content and apps, and telcos shouldn't be allowed to block such access or render these apps inaccessible.

Waseem Jabasini's insight:

MNOs/Telcos shoeld be afraid , very afraid .

 

- First Erosion of International Calls termination revenues ( Skype, Viber and in 2 months Whats app!)

-Second the Erosion of Messaging  revenues (do i need to give examples!?)

-Third the Erosion of Local Voice calls trending now( if the customer had a data plan with enough bandwidth) .

 

Operators must :

 

- Secure the regulator's position  on this matter making sure they stress the VoIP utilization and security related to being passed on public internet . I

- Start thinking of introducing their own branded VoIP clients . 

- Packaging the access to OTT services.

 

Just Saying!
