Telco Thought Leader Explains Big Bell Dogma Thinking
In an interview in Network World, Roberto Saracco, director of the Telecom Italia Future Centre, said “the major reason carriers are placing data caps on their LTE services is to prevent users from going exclusively with wireless data services
and ditching their landline connections.” (Note, the quote is from the article in Network World and not a direct quote from Saracco.)
Network World’s article included this direct quote from Saracco: “You’re always going to want to make the maximum amount of value, and you don’t want to have your fixed-line network being cannibalized by mobile.”
This is a great example of Big Bell Dogma: Do what you can to slow the mobility revolution in order to protect the status quo.
