Is satellite revenue still going to grow? Is fibre offering more opportunities to invest than CDN? How much can you earn from terrestrial services? Is uplink profitable? Which regions are growing fastest? Where to invest and which type of investment might prove most rewarding? Those are some of the questions we are asked every day by the executives of companies offering data transmission services.

Highlights: Almost $18.5bn was spent by Media & Entertainment industry on transport in 2014. This workbook underlines which platforms are growing fastest.
