LTE is set to transform Roaming- but what impact will it have?

With LTE services rolling out around the globe in 2011, operators and affiliates must prepare themselves for the transformative effect this will have on the telecoms industry, particularly the roaming sector. The enterprise roaming segment has long provided a reliable price inelastic revenue stream but this stream can be widened to include all subscribers and increase revenues in a saturated market. International regulatory bodies are taking action in regards to roaming costs and we believe this is the right time to capitalise with smart and effective pricing strategies.
