Fitch Ratings today published the special report 'U.S. Telecom Competitive Landscape: Living on the Edge', which reviews historic competitive lessons in the sector and identifies future risks.
The 'rule-of-three' is a business and economic maxim that explains how mature competitive markets can only support normally three generalists along with a variety of niche operators or specialists.
Many of the successes and failures in the U.S. telecom segment can be explained by the rule-of-three. As a result, there are scenarios today that are unfolding in ways that are similar to earlier sector trends. These trends are visible in wireless, subscription video, and up-market commercial services.
This report includes a summary review of the competitive evolution of the U.S. telecom industry and its segments. In addition, the report takes a closer look at Sprint and T-Mobile in their quest to become a wireless third generalist, along with DISH Network's prospects to remain a generalist and the risks associated with the commercial services market segment where there is no third generalist.
The full report is available on Fitch's web site at 'www.fitchratings.com'.
