$35 Smartphone Suggests Telecom Costs Still Way Too High

In any competitive business, the provider with the lowest cost tends to win. And that is a problem that has not yet been solved by most tier-one service providers in developed markets. 

One example is a $35 smartphone. WhatsApp offering voice and messaging provides another example. 

The rise to prominence of firms such as Huawei, network function virtualization, software optimized networks and software defined networks provide additional examples. 

On a global basis, the telecom industry continues to have operating and capital costs that are too high.
