Market Insights

How will investment in Wi-Fi drive network performance and ARPU for fixed line operators?

The cost of recent telco investment into WiFi Networks and Services is creating mounting pressure for the industry to see some return for that infrastructure outlay. However, for now, the biggest driver of ARPU growth in telecoms is inflation.

The industry expects that a focus on upgrading Wi-Fi could be the new route for fixed line operators to maximise their WiFi Networks and Services investments and deliver high quality FTTH services. In addition to the monetisation opportunities from delivering a more connected, smarter home (via advanced Wi-Fi technologies such as Wi-Fi 7) – investment in Wi-Fi could also enable telcos to capitalise on the growing public sector and enterprise focus on smart cities and industrial IoT (IIoT). 

See the most influential and innovative players in the global Wi-Fi ecosystem come together to share their knowledge and discuss the future of this key area of growth for the telecoms industry.
