The price of networks these days!

The excitement at this year's Telecom World Congress is already causing some speakers to share more than they intended.

Talking about 3 UK's network-sharing deal with T-Mobile, Hutchison Europe managing director Christian Salbaing explained that the pair's HSPA network will be the "most expensive by 2009"... before quickly correcting himself - 3 and T-Mobile will have the most "extensive" high-speed network by that date!

"Expensive?! Possibly [that] as well," Salbaing joked.

Telecom World Congress 2008 is in full swing at London's Hotel Russell. For all the news from the event, log on to Total Telecom between now and Thursday.

This is definitely a hotly debated topic which gives impetus to the growing argument for managed services. I am in the process of doing some research on this topic and I uncovered a live webcast relating to this. The guys at the analyst firm Ovum Research have done detailed analysis of the managed network services opportunities worldwide upto the country level granularity. Here is the sign-up link to their sessions (4 in all, one covering each geo).
