Focus on capex and opex reductions whilst pitching 'value added' services at
Telcos striving to build up their voice over IP (VoIP) profits are unlikely

new value-added services. “The idea is to add more features to a basic VoIP
service and then ask for a premium,” said Stéphane Téral of Infonetics Research.
