1.1. Background

Telecommunication services
A service provided by a telecommunications provider, or a specified set of user-information
transfer capabilities provided to a group of users by a telecommunications system is called
Telecommunications service. The telecommunications service provider has the responsibility
for the acceptance, transmission, and delivery of the message and the telecommunications
service user is responsible for the information content of the message.

Telecom services now include fixed-network services (data retail, Internet retail, voice retail
and wholesale) and mobile services. Fixed-data services includes all dedicated/private line,
packet and circuit-switched access services (for example, frame relay, asynchronous transfer
mode, IP, Integrated Services Digital Network, DSL, multichannel multipoint distribution
service [MMDS] and satellite) retail revenue. No differentiation is made between the type of
traffic or application carried by these services. All types of transmissions non-voice data,
image, video, fax, interactive services and even voice can be carried by these services
regardless of whether the source format is analogue or digital. All revenue reflects service
provider annualized retail revenue paid for by the business and residential end user of the
service; no wholesale or carrier-to-carrier revenue is included.

Fixed-voice services is another service that reflects retail voice service revenue for all services
that are sold as such to end users and includes the provision of local and long-distance services
related to voice (calling charges, line rental/subscription and connection fees are included in
this category), enhanced voice services, data and fax transmission over the circuit-switched
PSTN, and retail voice over IP revenue — paid for by the business and residential end user of
the service; no wholesale or carrier-to-carrier revenue is included.

Mobile telecom services generate income from mobile telephone calls and mobile data usage
(Short Message Service [SMS] and mobile data access) from all mobile operators in that
regional market.. Income from mobile telephone calling charges, mobile data access, SMS
charges, line rental/subscription and connection fees are included in this category.
Wholesale/carrier services are not included as a component of business IT spending.
Wholesale/carrier services reflect carrier revenue from carrier-to-carrier service transactions.
Telecommunications services are a global market worth over US$ 1.5 trillion in revenue.
Mobile services account for roughly 40 per cent of this, while mobile subscribers worldwide
currently outnumber the use of fixed telephone lines by more than two to one. Over the past
decade, the market has witnessed far-reaching changes, with the introduction of competition
into a sector that was once principally a monopoly. There are large numbers of the players
providing the telecommunication services in recent days.
