Ovum estimates that operators lost $13.9bn in 2011 due to social messaging

New estimates from Ovum indicate that consumers’ increasing use of IP-based social messaging* services on their smartphones cost telecom operators $8.7bn in lost SMS revenues in 2010, and $13.9bn in 2011.

In a new report**, the independent technology analyst reveals that it expects the decline, representing nearly 6% of total messaging revenue in 2010 and 9% in 2011, to continue as the popularity of messaging apps continues to grow. Ovum warns operators to rework their legacy services if they want to secure their future position in the messaging market.
