Over the past two years, my cofounders and I have been meeting with telecoms all around the world, from Afghanistan to Zambia and the U.S. and finding incredible similarities across every company, regardless of the company size and region.  

What we found is that every telecom shares the same business objectives:1. how do they become the leading network in their region and 2. how do they keep customers happy.

Around the world billions of people depend on their mobile carriers to stay connected.

After hundreds of conversations with IT teams, marketers, and executives, we boiled down the top 3 symptoms indicating that a they are not ready for machine learning.

A Tech Republic article from 2014 revealed that 75% of new wireless subscribers are actually coming from other providers who didn’t address their needs.  Furthermore,  annual churn rates amongst telecom companies range between a striking 10% and 67%.
