When we look from a telecom service provider’s perspective, the situation today is extremely challenging. Whether you are an MVNO or MNO, you have to face extreme competition from all directions.

So, if you are a new operator, you would be thinking what chance do you stand in this ‘few horse’ race? Don’t worry. Actually, the market is ideal for MVNOs who are willing to be the horses for the courses i.e. if you have a plan and a strategy to woo a customer base, you can definitely survive in the market.

Telecom industry is an ever-evolving space. Every few months there is a new development that forces telcos to change their strategies. For a new entrant in the market, this can be an intimidating situation. Not only MNOs/MVNOs have to fulfil the current needs, but they also have to keep tabs on what comes next. One needs to at least have expertise in voice and video calls, IPTV and VoD, IP Centrex/Hosted IP PBX, residential VoIP, Wi-Fi, LTE and M2M/IoT. This is just the very basic.
