The telecommunications market was first disrupted by the widespread use of smartphones. Smartphones opened a pandora's box to a new world of free apps offering a multitude of communication services - replacing SMS and phone calls - that only required Internet access in order to function.

Thanks to network infrastructures implemented by telecom operators, both businesses and individuals enjoy faster and more reliable Internet connections, which give us access to larger amounts of information than ever before, and an ability to communicate both instantly and easily among ourselves as well as with businesses and organizations. It is a reality that we could hardly imagine a few years ago.

It is therefore paradoxical that network operators are precisely the ones who have been the slowest to address their own digital transformation. According to a preliminary survey by PwC’s Strategy&, while 82% of global telecom executives anticipate that their companies will become digital leaders, there is still a long way to go for most telcos.
