A Tour To The Top Tier Telecom Companies

Oct 16, 2019 by

Different Tier Networks

Talking about the top tier companies there comes many tiers i.e. tier1 networks, tier2 networks, and tier 3 networks. Tier 1 networks are the ones that need not pay to other networks for the exchange of traffic in any direction. While the other 2 networks need to pay for the tiers below them. 

Tier 1

Tier 1 networks are transit free networks but not all the transit free networks are tier 1networks. It is because by paying to peer and without reaching all major networks offer networks to become transit-free. Some of the tier 1 networks are namely AT&T, Qwest, TW Telecom, Global crossing, Telefonica, Orange, Deutsche.

Tier 2

Tier 1 is the secondary source and is a lesser-known provider as compared to its predecessor. These companies seem to be limited in their geographical locations. These networks include cogent communications, hurricane electric, Vodafone cable, and wireless services.

Tier 3

Out of these two tiers, the more modest firms fall under the third category, tier 3. These companies have the capacity to form bidding teams for larger workforces. Such companies also have hands-on experience in big projects. They also have a customer-focus approach.

Rise of Internet Usage For Calling Purpose

With Orange SA at the 8th positing, most companies decreased their value in 2018; Global ranking also includes only one-fifth of the largest 25 telecom firms. This is due to the great competition that Internet companies are finding. Many people prefer to use the internet to call. For example call by WhatsApp, Skype or any other means and use the traditional call by cell phone or landline. As the annual list of the most powerful public companies is ranked on the basis of profits, assets and market value.

India’s older telecoms like Vodafone and Bharti Airtel have stopped their poaching activities to return the industry in all three carriers. Analysts and industry officials also said that the aim is to reduce churn which would also help in operating margins.

Some Facts…

Note that AT&T falls from 87 billion to 82 billion. It lost the value of 5 billion! Do you want to see it in numbers? Well, there it goes! 5,000,000 dollars! Though it is not a real waste of money, it is what the company is devalued. Let’s say that in 2017 if the owner wanted to sell that company, the value of the company was 87 billion, now in 2018 it is only worth 82 billion dollars.

We see that some other telecommunications companies have increased their value. But it is clear that everyone is being hit by the competition. That is why they are adopting innovative strategies. The clear competition they make is Microsoft (owner of Google) who bought Skype and Facebook that bought WhatsApp. This way, you can call without spending your balance on WhatsApp.

Our Views

Finally, we want them to stop for a moment and think about the amount of money that companies are worth. Let’s say think about the value of AT&T of 82 billion dollars. And why do we want you to think about that for a moment? Simply because in many cases that amount is more than the GDP of many countries.

For example, there are countries that in their collection of 1 YEAR do not even raise that amount of money. You realize. These companies are worth more than everything that many countries collect. That is why these companies have so much value that they can buy an entire country if they wanted to, just as banks do; but this is another topic that we will discuss in another article.
