In this quarter’s update, we have incorporated the latest subscriber data from the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) and Bangladeshi mobile operators, and made several adjustments to our forecast scenarios. We have also extended our forecast period to 2016.

At the time of writing, the BTRC and several mobile operators have yet to release the latest subscriber data pertaining to the quarter ended September 2011. We estimate that there were about 86.555mn mobile subscribers in Bangladesh at the end of September 2011, representing a net addition of 4.728mn from the previous quarter. Grameenphone was the only operator to have announced its September 2011 results.

The operator’s subscriber base increased to 35.245mn from 33.824mn in June 2011, while its blended ARPU fell to BDT257 from BDT270 over the same period. We believe that the Bangladeshi mobile industry is on track to meet our end-2011 target of 90.511mn. In our newly extended forecast, we expect 158.940mn subscribers in the country at the end of 2016, with a penetration rate of 99.2%. While we have largely retained our expectations for Bangladesh’s fixed-line industry, we have adjusted our forecasts for the country’s internet and broadband sectors in light of new data from the ITU. We forecast 9.718mn internet users and 4.729 broadband (fixed and mobile) subscribers in Bangladesh at the end of 2016.

In the quarter ended September 2011, we saw the announcements that the Bangladeshi government has planned to auction 3G licences in September 2012 and state-owned Teletalk has been granted permission to trial the technology. The dust surrounding the 2G licence renewal fees for Bangladesh's four mobile operators was seemingly settled in September 2011 after a year of negotiations with the regulator.

However, the BTRC contacted the…...

...How Is Building a Brand in a Business-to-Business Context Diffrent from Doing so in the Consumer Market? Building a strong brand that is able to set a company apart from other business is always an important job. However depending on who the intended client is determines how the company will build their brand. A brand is defined as a name, term, sign, symbol, or design, or any combination to identify goods and services of a seller or group of sellers. (2007) According to Walter Landor, founder of the Landor Associates, the world’s leading brand consulting firm; a brand is a promise that the company will provide satisfaction and quality. (Burgess, C) While many things in branding are the same, building a brand that supports brand to brand, B2B, or brand to customer, B2C, sales has slight differences. In B2B branding, a focus will be made on making a strong connection with the client business in order to make their brand seen as the top choice and safe to do business with. In order to do this, the brand will be built around making strong and personal relationships with the customer to become the go-to source. Instead of mass marketing and small ads, B2B branding requires that the business be willing to accept the time to completely educate the professional buyers about the brand. These professional buyers are used because they are well informed about the needs and goals of the purchase, and focus on purchasing a product that allows them to achieve higher......

Telco Essay

...TELECOMMUNICATIONS: THE BATTLE OF THE INDUSTRIES April 24, 1999 Econ 635 There have been many changes in the way telecommunication companies have been doing business- not only to satisfy the needs of the consumer, but to compete with other telecommunication services, too. Advances in technology have led to the integration of several telecommunication services which enter a home through existing copper wires or newer optical lines. New laws are even allowing companies to merge or acquire smaller companies for the purpose of increasing their leverage in the market. Cable Industry Currently, the cable industry relies heavily on the use of coaxial cable to transmit its signals, through radio waves, to consumers. This is the cable that is already installed in millions of homes throughout the country. However, compared to other recent technological advances, the coaxial cable has many set backs to overcome. First, the number of signals that it can transmit simultaneously is limited. Second, the signal transmitted by the cable gets worse as distance increases. As an additional option, fiber optics have emerged which can carry hundreds of video, data and voice channels. I will go into further detail on fiber optics later in my research. This traditional cable responded by implementing the use of digital compression. Digital compression allows a broadcaster to squeeze in more channels of programming in each single coaxial cable, although picture quality......

...subscribers, operators can move them up the value chain and increase the ARPU As the customer acquisitions from rural India is increasing, the minutes of usage per subscribers (MoU) and ARPU are falling(Q-o-Q) due to lower paying capacity and usage patterns. The wireless teledensity in urban India at the end of December 2010 was 140%. This points towards limited potential to add new Urban subscriber connections. The mobile tariffs in India are one of the lowest in the world and due to hyper -competition in telecom it is not expected to rise in near future. Mobile subscriber Composition VAS remains only effective tool to increase the ARPU/share of wallet of subscribers.

Business Is Business

...The purpose of business is to provide people with a product or service and we all understand that businesses have those to whom it is responsible, whether it is the stock/shareholder or the consumer. Providing a service or making something is very black or white in the area of product or service responsibilities, where it becomes grey is in the area of social responsibility. Who would have ever dreamed that the same Ford Motor Company that destroyed thousands upon thousands of acres of rain forest in the in the jungles of South America in the early Nineteenth Century in search of an abundance of rubber would today be a champion of eco-fuels and rain forest preservation? Businesses are perceptive and have the fundamental understanding that in order to survive in today’s hypersensitive, politically correct society, they must be perceived as guardians of “what’s in” rather than concentrating on their bottom line because in many instances, that perception ends up affecting their bottom line. God created the universe and all that’s in it for us to enjoy and utilize. In Genesis, we learn that after the fall and the realization of our nakedness that Adam and Eve utilized animal skins in order to cover their bodies due to shame. They actually had to do some “dirty work” in order to make the skins into clothing. This alone tells us that having dominion over the animals and the things of the earth means we are to utilize them as needed but at the same time to be good stewards. ......

... . . . . The Neilsen Rating System The Neilsen Ratings System began as a radio rating system by Arthur Neilsen. The Neilsen Rating System evolved to eventually analyze television data. In 1950, Nielsen moved to television, developing a ratings system using the methods he and his company had developed for radio (Levin, 2006). That method has since become the primary source of audience measurement information in the television industry around the globe. Measuring Ratings The Neilsen Rating system is characterized as a syndicated data provider. A syndicated data provider tracks the change of one or more measures over time, usually in a given industry (Cooper, 2006). Neilsen Rating system makes a very lucrative business for the data that is presented to the entertainment industry, most importantly television. The primary system of measuring data for the Neilsen Rating system is by gathering data and the industry pays up to millions of dollars for periodic reports of data. Devices are used to gather the information. These devices gather the viewing habits of the home and transmit the information nightly to Nielsen through a "Home Unit" connected to a phone line. . . The technology-based home unit system is meant to allow market researchers to study television viewing habits on a minute to minute basis, seeing the exact moment viewers change channels or turn off their TV (Segal, 2007). Another term for this process is Neilsen using set meters. Set......
