Telecom markets have traditionally been segmented along consumer & business boundaries—residential buyers needed in-home voice, data, & video services, while businesses or enterprises required multi-station voice and private data services. Over the past few years the Internet and a new generation of hand-held wireless access devices have killed the old model, blurring the boundaries between business-to-consumer (B2C), business-to-business (B2B), and consumer-to-consumer (C2C) domains. This report looks at changing buying patterns in the US and presents hypothetical scenarios for how changing buying behaviors will reshape telecom purchasing decisions. This study also provides assessments of changing industry revenue models.
