The telecommunications market is extremely dynamic and competitive. There is a need here for technological innovations, efficient products and comprehensive advisory services. This is reflected in the clear trend towards bundled products that combine internet, landline and mobile telephones. Smartphones, tablet computers and the associated range of apps bring additional dynamism to the mobile telephone market. Services such as online TV and cloud computing, which involve the transfer of increasingly large volumes of data, result in an ever-growing demand for faster internet connections.
