By definition - telecommunication includes television, radio and of course telephone communication. However with the growth of technology and media, it seems that television and radio networks are seen more as media companies these days. Putting that aside and using definitions as a guide line to work with, this is definitely an industry that is action packed and filled with exciting new developments. The growth of telecommunications means that new developments and trends are just around the corner - combining both communication and content into single interactive platforms!

Most telecommunication companies have a diverse network of employees, ranging from marketing, call centre employees, journalists, IT experts, accountants and even lawyers! This is really dependant on the company itself.

Popular companies in this industry:
