Olaf Swantee, the global head of France Telecom's Orange mobile business, told a conference last week that the reduction in voice revenues, new regulation and the economic downturn had resulted in a "perfect storm" for operators and said the changes were structural and were unlikely to return once economies recover, according to a Reuters report.
"There are only so many hours in the day that people can phone and we're seeing voice ARPU (average revenue per use) decline quite significantly," the news wire quoted him as saying. At the same conference, Vodafone's European CEO Michel Combes mooted the idea of charging content providers and/or subscribers a premium in return for a guaranteed quality of service, according to Reuters. source: Reuters
