Will the U.S. Providers Learn from Telco 2.0?

James Enck has provided detailed posts on his EuroTelcoblog with a report of his observations at the day two and day one proceedings of the Telco 2.0 event in London last week.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend. However, based on what I have read thus far, I believe that this type of event has never been held in the U.S. market -- because the dialogue included a very candid assessment of where the telco players have challenges, and where they have deep flaws in business strategy.

At the typical U.S. telecom industry events, the tough questions rarely get asked. New service launch projections are wildly optimistic, and the mention of apparent problems are quickly glossed over.

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) and the United States Telecom Association (USTelecom) announced plans for NXTcomm, a new combined industry event.

This is an excellent opportunity for reform, by encouraging a more open and unbiased debate regarding both the current and forward-looking U.S. telco sector assessment.
