Mobile Market Consolidation Decreases CAPEX

North American Mobile Market Consolidation Decreases Operator CAPEX by $2.5 Billion says Pyramid Research -- "The wave of mobile operator consolidation in North America will reduce infrastructure expenditures by $2.5 billion during the 2005-2009 period according to the latest Pyramid Research forecasts. Through the combination of networks, the New Cingular will reduce CAPEX by $5 billion over a five year period compared to AT&T and Cingular�s combined CAPEX projections compiled last year. Similarly, the merger of Canada�s Rogers and Microcell will result in a $170 million decrease in equipment investment. Dampening the impact on equipment sales from market consolidation is greater than expected increases in minutes of use and subscriber uptake. Pyramid concludes, the recent activity is a hit to equipment vendors that can be countered by landing service contracts for network management and other services."
