  • An uneasy relationship between telecom & technology | The Financial Express
    mobile internet Telecom executives worry that this role will force operators to miss out on the growing revenue that flows into smartphone applications Internet gaming and other services which all run on top of their networks The concerns come as many carriers revenues particularly in Europe whose economy is still stuttering have levelled off Some industry insiders also have expressed frustration that American tech giants like Google and Amazon which have used complicated tax structures to reduce their global tax burdens do not face the same levels of regulatory scrutiny as carriers That includes the FCC s net neutrality decision last week which will allow the agency to treat broadband Internet access as a public utility for regulatory purposes We always pay taxes in Europe Pierre Louette deputy chief executive at the French telecom operator Orange told an industry conference late last year in a jab at the Silicon Valley giants We can t continue to be overregulated while they are not regulated At the same time several tech giants have gained footholds in areas traditionally dominated by the big telecom companies Google for example is introducing fiber optic networks in several American cities offering television and Internet services at speeds of up to one gigabit a second 100 times as fast as the average Internet connection The search giant is running other pilot projects in emerging markets including Kampala Uganda to build Internet infrastructure not offered by local carriers And Facebook now competes head on with traditional telecom players after acquiring WhatsApp the Internet messaging service last year for 19 billion Along with Facebook Messenger the company s separate messaging service Facebook now has hundreds of millions of mobile users who have shifted from traditional text messaging a once highly lucrative revenue source for carriers to free Internet messaging on their mobile devices Operators only have themselves to blame said Steven Hartley a telecom analyst at the research company Ovum in London They didn t adapt to the mobile shifts in the industry They can t complain when others beat them to the punch To avoid falling further behind operators are trying to adapt Some including Telefónica of Spain and Deutsche Telekom have opened their own start up incubators to invest directly in fledgling companies that could one day compete with West Coast rivals Peter Borchers who runs Deutsche Telekom s start up programme with offices in Berlin Tel Aviv and Krakow Poland said the investments helped the carrier keep ahead of new tech developments like connected devices and smartwatches that might otherwise pass it by Investments range from 112 000 to 335 000 for a stake of up to 10 in a start up The investments have to be strategically relevant to Deutsche Telekom Borchers said It helps us tap into future innovations First Published on March 3 2015 12 45 am Tags Facebook Vodafone Please Wait while comments are loading More on this story Twitter to launch new Facebook style timeline in 23 countries Facebook bans pages

  • FCC approves net neutrality rules, classifies broadband as utility | The Financial Express
    is not broken Pai said There is no problem to solve The impact of the new rules will hinge partly on details that are not yet known The rules will not be published for at least a couple of days and will not take effect for probably at least a couple of months Lawsuits to challenge the commission s order are widely expected The FCC is taking this big regulatory step by reclassifying high speed Internet service as a telecommunications service instead of an information service under Title II of the Telecommunications Act The Title II classification comes from the phone company era treating service as a public utility But the new rules are an à la carte version of Title II adopting some provisions and shunning others The FCC will not get involved in pricing decisions or the engineering decisions companies make in managing their networks Wheeler who gave a forceful defence of the rules just ahead of the vote said the tailored approach was anything but old style utility regulation These are a 21st century set of rules for a 21st century industry he said First Published on February 28 2015 12 02 am Please Wait while comments are loading Videos BMW 7 series Merc S600 showcased at Auto Expo 2016 Auto Expo 2016 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Baleno RS unveiled Auto Expo 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta MPV makes its India debut Auto Expo 2016 New Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed Galleries IPL 9 auction Market Capitalisation Employment index Vegetable oil import BSE Sensex more PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 New Mahindra cars at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016 In the news PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep
