New Business Models (2001 - 2004)

The need for new business models is directly related to the emergence of the Ubiquitous Society. Increasing technological convergence has transformed the telecommunications sector into the electronic communications industry, and this in turn has attracted new players into the market. In addition, broadband access is creating opportunities for new multimedia and content revenue-generating services. The GBDe believes content and service providers must therefore now create new applications and formats to take advantage of the new features provided by convergence and broadband. However, there is a clear need for industry and governments to co-operate in the development of innovative and commercially driven business models within this environment.
