Telecommunications

The Telecommunication sector makes communication possible through the phone or internet. It has created the infrastructure that allows data to be sent anywhere in the world and in a short period of time, it has radically transformed communications from the humble landline to lightning-fast comms used in nearly all work and personal settings.

The largest companies in the sector are telephone (both wired and wireless) operators, satellite companies, TV and broadband providers.

As more communications and computing methods shift to mobile devices and cloud-based technology, wireless communications is anticipated to be the segment of the industry responsible for the continued global expansion of the telecommunications sector.
