The folks at OFCOM have just published what promises to be a very interesting international survey of the communications market, spanning most of the key European markets, Japan, China and the US. Among other things, the research finds, somewhat unsurprisingly, one-third of broadband subscribers cite lower television viewing habits, and the level of online viewing of video/TV content in China is, frankly, jaw-dropping.
In a separate, but related development, I am very happy to have been invited to participate in a panel at an OFCOM event tomorrow, coinciding with the launch of a collection of essays, "Communications: The Next Decade," edited by Ed Richards, Robin Foster and Tom Kiedrowski. I will be joining three very distinguished speakers: Carolyn Fairbairn, Eli Noam, and Jonathan Zittrain. More on this after the event.
