Operator investment

As demand for data and for digital services grow, operators face a continuous balancing act around investment in networks, spectrum, software and services. They have to develop a rigorous strategy for addressing increasing demand for, and competition in, fixed and mobile infrastructure and capacity, while at the same time working out the extent and manner of their engagement in the fast-moving digital economy.

Analysys Mason's Operator Investment practice dives deep into the trends, opportunities and threats with regard to every aspect of investment. As well as raw data sets and interpretative analysis and insights, companies can benefit from direct access to our principal networks analysts, who each have at least 10 years of experience on the subject.
