The launch of the Apple iPhone 3G in Australia has changed our Telecommunication Industry for the better, forever and will only continue to do so in the future.
Who would have thought that one (albeit revolutionary) phone could change a multibillion-dollar industry so much. The iPhone has not only set a very high benchmark for the worldwide production of mobile phones but has dramatically changed the Australian Telecommunication Industry.
- Immediate Lower Data Costs-The iPhone encourages data use like no other phone ever has before and this dramatic increase in demand for data has caused greater competition between telecommunications companies. This has led to a massive drop in data prices; mainly for specific iPhone plans but often also on plans for other 3G phones as well.
- More Investment in Projects-Due to the sheer demand for the iPhone 3G in Australia, telecommunication companies are starting projects and fast-tracking existing ventures to deliver faster mobile browsing speeds (mostly through 3G networks), to more people and places around the country.
- Lower Data Cost in the Future- Through this increased investment in projects telcos will be able to deliver data at a much cheaper price in the future compared to what the price would be if the iPhone didn't exist.
