Australia - Telecommunication Services: Saturated market with opportunities for growth (Strategy, Performance and Risk Analysis)
The Internet and data category remains one of the key segments for Australian telecoms with revenues accounting for 56.9% of the total in 2016. One of the ways this segment will grow is by reducing the churn rate, therefore securing customers long-term. Annual mobile churn rate declined from 21.4% in 2012 to 16.3% in 2016, and is estimated to be at 13.0% in 2021. One of the ways this will be achieved is through government initiatives such as the Mobile Black Spot program, which aims to improve network coverage in remote locations. . Under this program, the government plans to invest US$448 million in the establishment of 750 new mobile base stations and over 86,000km of new coverage area.
