With stiff competition coming from traditional rivals and upstart players, the immediate need to slash operating costs or risk financial catastrophe coupled with having to invest in more bandwidth and the strong requirement to come up with new lines of business to hang onto existing customers and make inroads with new ones, providers are finding themselves stretched in every possible direction almost to the breaking point.
