Australia - Telecoms Industry - Revenue Statistics and Analyses (by provider) - 2000 - 2015
This report provides statistics on revenue and revenue growth as well as analyses for the Australian telecommunications market between 2000 and 2015 by major providers.
The telecoms service market is segmented according to the major providers Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, as well as a number of second-tier market providers. Detailed revenue and statistics are included separately for Telstra, Optus and Vodafone for the current and previous financial years.
Telstra continues to dominate the overall Australian telecom market, holding about 62% market share by revenue. This market share in some sectors, such as broadband, has been falling steadily since the highs that it held in the early 2000s, though the company has retained its dominance in segments such as mobile voice and data. Telstra invested heavily in network upgrades and was the first to launch mobile data services based on LTE. As such it was in a position to capitalise on being the first player in this market and could reap the advantages of network performance and reach to attract new customers. These advantages diminished in 2015 as Optus and Vodafone also launched LTE services, though Telstra retains a key lead in the provision of fixed-line broadband services in the less heavily urbanised areas. Optus and Vodafone have begun to emerge from several difficult financial quarters, while second-tier players including Macquarie Telecom, iiNet, M2 Telecom and TPG continue to report strong revenue growth.
Additional revenue, analysis and forecasting segmented by major service (voice, mobile, data and broadband) can be found in the separate report: Australia - Telecoms Industry - Revenue Statistics and Analysis (by service) - 2000 - 2015.
