Global Mobile Roaming: Operator Strategies,
Opportunities and Challenges
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

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.
