Martin Geddes on telco Business Models

Martin Geddes, head of strategy at BT Design, shares some interesting thoughts about telco business models for voice services. Martin concludes that the money doesn't have to be in new end-user services but can be in upstream services, optimizing how we connect, interact and transact, lowering the cost of sales and delivery for actors such as call centers.
