Broadband providers will have to diversify the products they offer to SMEs in the future, according to a new report.A global adviser on telecoms, IT and media, Analysys, predicts that SME spend on broadband access is expected to peak in 2009. However, the report also estimates that the market for broadband managed services for SMEs is set to grow considerably after this time.By the end of 2011, the company predicts that SMEs in western Europe will have increased their spend on broadband managed services by €4 billion (£2.7 billion)."From 2010 onwards, downward pricing pressure is expected to outweigh take-up of new broadband access connections by SMEs in Western Europe," said the report's author, Simon Sherrington."This will push the value of the western European SME market for broadband access into a slow decline. In order to sustain revenue growth, providers targeting the SME sector must introduce complementary services."Elsewhere, the report found that two-thirds (65 per cent) of SMEs prefer to buy all their telecom services from a single provider. This means that broadband providers who offer SMEs the right package of bundled services are likely to perform well in the future.© Adfero Ltd
