16 Things You Didn’t Know About The Telecommunication Industry

15 Things You Didn’t Know About The Telecommunication Industry




this is industry Wednesday every Wednesday we analyze a different industry today we're looking at 15 things you didn't know about the telecommunications industry welcome to a
lox calm the place where future billionaires come to get informed hello a Luxor's and welcome back to another exciting video brought to you by our team here at a LOX calm today it's all about the telecom industry and how it changed the world.



Telecommunication




if there is one industry that has changed our lives significantly in the past few decades that is surely telecommunications we are literally glued to our phones making calls texting non stop and of course watching videos so much so that we take for granted a few things including the fact that a decade ago many of these things were hard to do or much more expensive it is indeed an industry that is driven by customer behavior but that also heavily influences how we consume data choose jobs and ultimately how we spend our
time if you're new here welcome be sure to subscribe and follow us on instagram at a Lux without further ado here are 15 things you didn't know about the telecommunications industry .

number one


high speed wireless internet is the ultimate growth factor the internet keeps us connected and let's face itnowadays you most likely need it to do your job that's why expensive and often unavailable internet costs us time and money since a lot of things depend on it
consumers also demand more and more data connectivity for video streaming and multimedia applications the telecommunications industry is ahead of this spearheading changes in how we consume Internet and that is major growth of wireless internet usage indeed you can say that the wireless high-speed Internet is the future wireless internet functions through fiber based networks that are increasingly expanding their reach throughout the US and all over the world.

number 2


TV and Internet are addictive especially to children look we're not preaching anything here
after all you're probably using a device to watch this video but did you know that the average person in the u.s. spends about 12 hours daily interacting with different media and devices that includes children who are most vulnerable to becoming a little too
dependent on them that's because young children feel and experience things needing to have their brain stimulated to ensure adequate development if over stimulated through
technology this can lead to a lot of problems later on including behavioral issues and addiction to different devices so you might want to make slight changes to your routine as well maybe  taking a social media break or a day off without your phone will actually help you relax and recharge your batteries.


number 3 


satellites are key to the telecommunication industry you don't often see that in pictures taken in outer space but the earth is actually surrounded by satellites which are an essential part of this industry in fact 2,000 communication satellites are currently in Earth's orbit they have many applications and are used for internet TV telephone radio* communications and even in the military satellite phones are especially useful and provide all the benefits of a
terrestrial mobile phone including voice messaging and bandwidth internet access
isolated islands such as st. Elena and Easter Island would not otherwise be able to have phone connectivity without them many regions such as South America Canada and Australia are using this technology as well and if you ever wondered how ships at sea keep connected to the outside world well satellite phones are the answer.


number 4


it changed the way we talk and the vocabulary whoever is guilty of using lol and hashtag in real life knows this all too well our language has changed dramatically since the age of the internet we use shorter words communicate faster and have more options for how and when we communicate languages have always been evolving and they always well right now the trend is to pay little attention to grammar and punctuation and as a consequence rely
heavily on context to extract the meaning in our communications so much so that oxford dictionary regularly includes words such as Yolo and binge watch of course we didn't really need validation from a dictionary but at least they're paying attention .

number 5


China Mobile is the world's most profitable company with a net worth of two hundred and twenty five point three billion dollars the telecommunications industry is huge and very profitable only the top ten companies have a combined market value of fifty billion dollars and that's just going to increase as the global demand for wireless connectivity is growing fast chances are that if you're from the US you're probably a Verizon or AT&T; client these companies are huge there but they are not the most profitable in the worldnstead the top spot goes to China Mobile Limited which has 849 million clients making it the biggest provider in China in 2016 alone they gained an increase of two point five percent in
their number of subscribers so it's no wonder that as of April 2017 the company
boasts a market value of two hundred and twenty five point three billion dollars.


number 6


child labor is often used in the manufacturing process as with everything nowadays we really do need a reality check we love our devices and often change them for better or newer ones always waiting for the next release however this isn't sustainable in the long run
and most of all we're inadvertently buying products obtained by using child labor cobalt a silver gray metal found in mines is used to make phone batteries according to UNICEF there are 40,000 children working as miners in the Democratic Republic of Congo they extract cobalt using hand tools digging large holes in hard to imagine conditions some of them get badly injured or die as a consequence since there are little safety measures and all of that for a dollar a day .


number 7



security is the major threat and problem in telecommunications with the recent phase book scandal we're starting to wake up with the realities of security or better said lack of security in our communications for example Zuckerberg himself knows the risks since like the average laptop user he uses tape to cover his webcam he posed for a picture on Facebook in which you can clearly see his laptop and microphone covered by
tape it's clear that this is one of the industry's major challenges if not the biggest one the truth is since Edward Snowden leaked details about the CIA's surveillance we've gradually started to wake up however the European Union has always been ahead of this and is now the global leader in data privacy protection European citizens personal data will be much harder to access and manipulate by companies through the general data protection regulation or gdpr which will become effective May 2018 it remains to be seen if the rest of the world will follow suit .


number 8 

social media and apps were allegedly used for election
fraud speaking of Facebook the recent controversy has many more implications than we could have imagined giving your personal data to one company is one thing but having it used to another is a big deal Cambridge analytical used Facebook data and 87 million users to manipulate voters opinions and subsequently influence election outcomes it's no
wonder that since we are online so much and we consume a lot of news directly from Facebook this leaves us all vulnerable it seems the data was used in Russian and Italian elections with the latter relying heavily on misinformation and propaganda related to the Italian extreme right advocates are calling for more regulations and protection fo rconsumers.


number 9 


cellphone radiation may causecancer and other health problems there are many reasons to believe that cell phone radiation is bad for ourhealth experiments have shown that usingour phones frequently and for long periods of time is connected to some types of cancer health problems vary but the most common include brain cancer tumors lower sperm counts and negative effects for memory learning and sleep patterns some studies even linked
hearing headaches tinnitus and other issues with cell phone use especially suggesting
that children and teenagers are most susceptible to developing these problems.


number 10 


the world record for highestphone bill is 201 thousand dollars we've all done it at some point maybe by talking too much to our friends or just having to use the internet to watch those cute cat videos however when your two brothers are deaf and mute using text messages to
communicate is pretty vital that was the story for Celine Erin's a woman from Florida who used t-mobile in 2011 it was all well and good until one of her brothers went on vacation to Canada in his two-week stay there he frequently kept in touch with his family sending
text messages downloading videos and so on what they forgot was that at $10 per
megabyte they were sending some very expensive messages in fact they stacked up the world's most outrageous phone bill two hundred one thousand five dollars and forty four cents luckily the company later on reduced their bill to two thousand dollars but they've managed to turn their story into an industry legend .


number 11 


Africa is developing very fast in this sector there are many stereotypes about Africa out there that shape how we see the continent as a whole the truth is that Africa is actually developing quickly in this  sector indeed a great hope for development is access to online
education and other services and most of all access to the online economy the
telecoms infrastructure is thriving and as a consequence offshore companies are
paying attention to its growth current prediction state that mergers and acquisitions in the industry will be valued at 5.9 billion dollars in 2018 and possibly also in 2019.

number 12


AI and automation might replace a lot of jobs in the near future the fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us and that means both good and bad things there's no easy way around this automation will replace many of the existing jobs the telecommunication
sector will certainly have to let go many employees mid-level workers are going to be especially affected at this point since their skills will be outpaced by technology this will be a major problem since they'll be few jobs left at this point and it will be difficult to create new jobs for them emerging technology such as artificial intelligence and machine learning are much more than just buzzwords the industry is already investing heavily in this technology and around sixty three point five percent of companies spendingmoney is on AI systems .

number 13


telecom technology opened the door forcryptocurrency and digital cash the telecommunications industry also helped pave the way for crypto currencies such
as Bitcoin the new type of digital currency uses decentralized control and
relies heavily on cryptography to make transactions add new units or to verify
transactions basically this is just the next step since we've already started replacing physical cache on many levels it seems that central banks are starting to catch up with the trend for example the Bank of England has plans to forgo physical money and use an electronic
equivalent instead instead while the process of creating money will be made easier there are many questions related to policies and procedures around digital money .

number 14


in 1876 Alexander Graham Bell made the first telephone call as is with most great inventors a significant number of people have contributed to the creation of the modern-day telephone however around 142 years ago Alexander Graham Bell changed the world by making the first phone call in recorded history the exchange took place in his Boston home and he simply chatted to his assistant Thomas Watson who received the call from another room
Bell successfully patented the telephone on March 10 1876 becoming its official inventor although not without controversy he was sued by Elisha gray who filed a similar patent right after Bell filed his but to no avail Bell eventually started the Bell Telephone Company in 1877 which we know it today as the American telephone and telegraph company or AT&T; for short.

number 15


almost 70 percent of the world'spopulation has a phone do you know someone that doesn't have a phone it seems pretty rare but still 30 percent of the Earth's population does not have one however that also means that 70 percent do have access to a phone which is an unprecedented global milestone considering that the telecommunications industry is only a
few decades old and that it's reached around five billion people it's no wonder it's one of the most profitable it's also predicted that in 2019 more than 5 billion people will be mobile phone users large countries such as China and India will have 1.4 billion and 1 billion respective users and that's all for today a lack sirs we hope you liked the video and learn something useful today now before you go don't forget to tell us do you think technology addiction is real and do you think that you're addicted to your phone or other devices also since you're still here of course we have one extra bonus pack just for you .

number 16 


criminals use the dark web for purchasing any kind of illegal products they need not a lot
of people are aware of the dark web although it's a thriving Network a dark net user can access it through specific software such as tor the software uses non-standard communication protocols and file sharing tools that cannot be easily detected imagine living in a city that is very much open but has a much bigger underground life that is filled with
crime that's pretty much what the dark net is since people use it to purchase drugs guns hire hitman and all kinds of illegal transactions thank you for spending some time with us a Luxor make sure to subscribe so you never miss a video if you want more we hand-picked these videos you might enjoy or head over to a locks calm for the best in fine living content on the planet be a part of the largest community of luxury enthusiasts in the world and tellyour story.
