Conference on CEE Telecoms 2009 - now promoted through Aarkstore
|Event Date/Time: Jan 29, 2009||End Date/Time: Jan 30, 2009|
For the sixth consecutive year our CEE Telecoms conference will look into main issues facing the telecoms industry and offer outstanding solutions to businesses.The global markets and their economic growth in 2008 have been expanding by a staggering speed and the demand for telecoms supply has risen across the world. The market in each new EU country varies significantly, both in size and wealth: Sloveniaâ€™s GDP per capita is more than double that of Polandâ€™s although Polandâ€™s population is 19 times that of Slovenia.
Impacting on the telecoms market is EU-mandated competition, decreasing prices and leading to the introduction of new services by competing operators and incumbents alike.
This conference will offer an informative insight into the Central Eastern Europe region, covering regulatory developments, major players in the fixed-line, broadband, convergence and mobile markets, the development of new product offerings for the aforementioned markets, as well as presenting a wide range of industry related statistics in addition to broadband penetration forecasts.
Benefits of regulatory measures are becoming evident â€“ the cost of unbundled local loops and shared access loops fell in Slovakia and Slovenia while Hungary and Slovenia offer ULLs at prices below the average of the 27 EU member nations. FttH/FttB availability is expanding in all CEE countries, with deployments by all manner of different players in the telecoms market â€“ municipal governments, mobile network operators, fixed-line alternative operators as well as incumbents, a trend that is expected to continue moving into 2009. Emerging on the back of growing broadband penetration is the Internet economy, with data showing rises in the proportion of businesses or individuals accessing e-government services as well as businesses and individuals purchasing online. EU funding has improved accessibility to e-government services and broadband Internet in underserved areas, with additional funding until at least 2013. IPTV take up is also on the rise in most CEE countries. Aggressively priced mobile broadband access with prepaid data bundles are available in all these countries, offered over now widely-available EDGE/WCDMA/HSDPA networks and posing significant challenges for existing wireless broadband (i.e. WiMAX) operators.
This conference will examine the key issues of the current global structure of the telecoms market and opportunities for CEE Telecoms industry. Now in its 6th year in the CEE Telecoms Industry, the CEE Telecoms two-day forum has become an unrivalled informative event to attract the key players in the market.
