Independent operators on their local markets are rarely fighting with the same arms against international giants. Facing this enormous competition, independent operators are in huge danger at each step of their development. The group “ Independent Telecom Operators News & Challenges, powered by Monaco Telecom “ aims to understand these challenges and stimulate adapted solutions, as we are doing the same job, speaking the language of independent operators and facing the same issues. Sharing these specific problems around a large variety of subjects (technological, financial, commercial, marketing, regulatory..etc.) permits to discuss them together and to find solution approaches. It would be a pleasure for us to read from you, independent telecom operator, in our group.
