Telecommunications and media 

Communications infrastructure is an important element of an effective functioning economy.  As the telecommunications’ sector itself is subject to continual change, driven by technology, social trends, financial market conditions and government regulation, staying up to date is a challenge.

Fixed, mobile, satellite and broadband communications each bring different but equally exciting opportunities and challenges.  Consumer demand will continue to drive the industry and the winners will be those who can embrace new and emerging technologies whilst manage the demands of regulation, cost and network investment.


KPMG understands that when it comes to tackling tough problems, our clients look fro a relationship based on trust and facilitated by regular and open communications.  We are pleased that many of the world’s largest telecommunications and media companies have chosen KPMG member firms as their business and financial advisor.  It is a distinction that our telecommunications and media professionals work hard to earn each and every day.
