EMEA telcos have been holding up well during the economic crisis, as telco solutions often replace travel.
While mobile voice still dominates spending in EMEA, in WE the segment has contracted slightly due to competition & termination rate regulation. By contrast, in CEE & MEA, mobile voice growth remains strong.
But broadband & IP voice are the hottest segments in most EMEA markets - with IP voice growth soaring to high double digits in many countries.
Some top-level forecasts for 2010:
- WE spending growth on IP voice: 21%
- CEE mobile data spending growth: 8.8%
- MEA fixed-voice spending growth: -4.3%
