CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY - 15 - 1.Introduction Worldwide there are over 4 billion people that are separated by distance, who speak different languages and have different lifestyles.But they all chose the same thing: to communicate as they feel, to look with optimism to the future.All of them are close to each other thanks to Orange, one of the biggest communications companies worldwide. Orange is the key brand of France Telecom, one of the world's leading telecommunications operators. With more than 131 million customers, the Orange brand covers internet, television and mobile services in the majority of countries where the Group operates. At the end of 2009, France Telecom had sales of 44.8 billion euros (33.7 billion euros for the first nine months of 2010). At 30 September 2010, the Group had a total customer base of 203 million customers in 32 countries. These include 144.5 million mobile customers and 13.3 million broadband internet (ADSL, FTTH) customers worldwide. ...read more.

The debit can reach 384 Kbit/s: this innovation has a real impact on the strategy of Orange and other companies who want to use new technologies to obtain new market shares. 5. The five forces model 5.1 The threat of entry Identifying new competitors it s often difficult, that is not the case in the mobile phone industry. Because the mobile phone operators must compete for spectrum licenses, they can easily identify their competitors in the individual markets. he threat of new entrants bringing additional production capacity should be downplayed in this industry, because technology should assumed to be similar and thus new entrants do not necessarily bring additional production capacity, nor does their entry hold consumer cost down. he ?xed-line operators do however present a risk to mobile phone operators, because they will certainly provide extra production capacity and lower the consumer costs as a result of this competition. 5.2 Bargaining Power of Suppliers Mobile phone manufacturers are the primary supplier to the mobile phone operator market. These manufacturers were dominated by Ericsson, Nokia, and Motorola with 61 percent of the market. Because the mobile phone manufacturing brands were more important to consumers than the mobile phone operators themselves, bargaining power of suppliers was high.Industry ?rms are not a signi?cant customer for the supplier group because the suppliers operate in far more international locations and markets than the mobile phone operators. Suppliers' goods are critical to buyers' marketplace success. Mobile phone manufacturers could integrate forward into the industry. These suppliers were credible, having substantial resource and provide a highly diferentiated product. 5.3 Bargaining Power of Buyers There was very little di?erentiation among mobile phone operators, and the switching costs are low. Accordingly, the industry ?rms battle for higher quality, greater levels of service, and lower prices than their competitors, and the consumers bene?t. Mobile phone customers purchase the entire portion of the mobile phone operator's industry output. ...read more.
