David,

The following quote from a report entitled: Telco 2.0 Report provides an interesting insight.
https://www.telco2research.com/articles/TELUS_Health_Innovation_leader_case_study

Darren Entwistle is the CEO of Telus, the Alberta-based, national telecommunications company.

“Darren Entwistle refers to healthcare as a ‘generational investment’, saying that over the long term, TELUS may shift into a healthcare company that offers telecoms services, rather than the other way around.”

This insight offers a glimpse into the potential response to the 'death spiral' that affects large utility companies.

See Peter Martin's article in the SMH entitled: Death Spiral: why electricity prices are set to climb ever higher.
