Mobile operators are resiliently beating the recession

According to a new report from Ovum, mobile operators are comfortably and steadily beating the recession. Overall, operators maintained revenue and customer growth during the period, but the rate of growth is down. While most operators in emerging markets are yet to see any significant pressures on their performance, operators in countries such as the US and across Europe, where the recession has had dramatic impact, operators' revenues are holding out. Indeed, it is not about immunity from the recession per se, but rather, adaptability to the downturn. "It is comforting that mobile operators have shown remarkable resilience", says Emeka Obiodu, analyst at Ovum and author of the report. Article
