MEMBER NEWS: KPMG releases Wireless World as part of the Race for the Platform series
Wireless World is part of KPMG’s Race for the Platform series focused on the evolution of the premium content business and the possible maturation of over‑the‑top (OTT) business models. There’s a strong sense of urgency to evolve and transform. We believe the platform business model will dramatically change the way viewers select, purchase and watch premium content. Wireless World looks at the possibility that the wireless providers will become the dominant platform for consumers to obtain their premium content. Wireless carriers already have the combined strength of connectivity, bundling, and low marginal costs, affording them a distinct advantage in becoming the platform of choice for pairing mobility and premium video access. With mass smartphone adoption, constant connectivity, and the promise of 5G, wireless carriers are well‑positioned for the future.
