Hi all. Am doing a project at school and need to know if Zim's 3 major ISPs (Liquid, Africom & Powertel) have lost a significant amount of business to relatively new and smaller players like Yo! Telco and Aptics. Would appreciate figures, graphs etc or links to where I can get such info. Thanks!

And the Question really states those are are the Big 3? Are we not supposed to talk of tiers here? Why is Africom  in? How about Telone?

First of all get the definition of IAP and ISP.  You will realize there should be at least 10 IAP's who sell to the ISP's so its not really possible or feasible for Liquid to loose to Yo seeing as Yo buys internet from Liquid.

There is no space for smaller players. Those players like Telco use uplinks provided by those big three to put it in your words, so there is no business lost in my opinion.

that sounds like a please do my project for me question!

you should contact the big 3 ISP's directly - but i warn you, thats usually sensitive business information which means they are never likely to share that kind of info.

but as Macdonald size, most smaller ISP's are just reselling the bigger ISP's links anyway so it all comes back one way or another to the "big 3"
