Scenarios for 2025
These scenarios look forward to 2025. A team of around 130 people have contributed, plus numerous comments from readers. The papers follow chronological order, so you can jump to the outcome by scrolling down to the foot of the page. That said, the first text is a brief summary, and the very last link is to a PDF of the scenario presentation itself, plus recommendations for a workshop format. Many find this a good place to start, and prefer to use this as an index to guide them to specific papers of interest.

IBM Telco 2015 - United States

The telecommunications industry has experienced more change in the last decade than in its entire history. In 1999, only 15 percent of the world’s population had access to a telephone; by 2009, nearly 70 percent had mobile phone subscriptions. This decade has also brought steep declines in public switched telephone network (PSTN) voice revenues, an explosion of over-the-top (OTT) communication services, phenomenal growth in mobile communications, global industry consolidation and even ground-breaking telco decisions to outsource their networks.
