ZDNet UK: A group of analysts has agreed that big internet companies such as Google and Yahoo pose a threat to mobile operators. This is via TechDirt, and I agree with Mike that this isn’t really an issue unless operators want to become media companies. “Disruptive players offer more. They create a community, the community becomes robust, then they start to charge. Mobile operators skip straight to the final stage, and then wonder why the community is not there,” Gutberlet told ZDNet UK. Since those companies are so much better at creating communities wouldn’t it be better to let them get on with the job and make money on the data? Like what telcos traditionally do? The analysts suggested carriers should make deals with the big internet portals, a number of which have already occurred.
