Telco 2.0™ Research

The Future Of Telecoms And How To Get There

Webinar: Which operator growth strategies are viable in 2017 and beyond?


Summary:  For those that have been part of the telecommunications industry over the last 20 years it has been a wonderful ride. Extraordinary growth in fixed-line telecommunications from 1998-2001, as the internet developed, was followed by the explosion in mobile from 2002-2009.

Since 2009, things have been rather different in most markets. In this 30-minute webinar Chris Barraclough, Partner and Chief Strategist, talks about telco growth strategies between 2009 and 2016 and evaluate which of these are viable in 2017 and beyond.
