UnTelco in Utilities: Telco Opportunities and Market Activities

ABI Research coined the concept “UnTelco” to define those activities, strategies, and opportunities that Mobile Service Providers (MSPs) should pursue beyond their traditional offerings to foster their revenue growth. As revenue from the mobile consumer market continues to decline, wireless telco vendors and operators are looking at other verticals for new UnTelco growth opportunities. ABI Research identified the energy utility sector as one of the potential verticals where wireless telco vendors and MSPs can venture into. The energy utility industry is at a crucial stage with new technologies, regulations, and players bringing disruption but also creating new opportunities. In this report, ABI Research explores the key trends and technologies defining the market as well as telco and UnTelco initiatives, strategies, and opportunities. It also provides future market forecasts as well as recommendations for MSPs and vendors to seize the UnTelco market potential.
