Forrester Research To Present New Analysis On How Changing Customer Demand Is Impacting Telecom Providers; New Data On Consumer And Enterprise Telecom Trends To Be Unveiled During Media Teleconference

Jun 21, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Forrester Research (NASDAQ: FORR)--

WHAT:
The days of telecommunications providers owning the end-to-end pipe
are over. Telecom customers seek more control over their
communications options and the networks over which they travel -- some
of which are carrier owned and some of which are not. For example,
enterprise end-users want to deploy voice over WLAN, but are stymied
by handset availability and lack of carrier support. According to
Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR), almost half of the North
American enterprises recently surveyed are interested in handsets that
have Wi-Fi and cellular capability, even though few handsets are
currently available.

Consumers increasingly expect access wherever they are and the content
that they demand. Forrester finds that, despite billions of dollars of
carrier investment, wireless consumers' satisfaction with call
dependability has declined by 10% since 2002. As consumers and
businesses insist on even more control over their experiences, the
telecommunications industry must move from a dictatorial mindset and
respond with products, pricing, tools and an ecosystem of partners to
put the control in the customers' hand.

Forrester analysts Ellen Daley and Charles Golvin will present their
recent research, analysis, and new data on the telecom industry and
how the evolving demand for products and services will impact which
telecom providers succeed and which will not in today's era of
consolidation.

A Q&A session for participants will follow their 20-minute briefing.
