Carolina Consulting Support Network Sharing in Telecommunication Industry.
Carolina Consulting are an outsourced direct sales and marketing firm based in Liverpool UK, where they are currently developing a customer recruitment programme for one of the leading Telecommunications companies in Britain.
Telefonica UK and Vodafone UK have recently announced their intention to strengthen their UK network collaboration. A company report stated that the goal is to create one national grid running each operator’s independent spectrum by pooling the basic parts of their network infrastructure. There is already a networking sharing agreement in place between Everything Everywhere (Orange and T-Mobile) and Three, who according to a BBC news article will have over 18,000 shared masts by the time the whole operation is completed. Now Vodafone and O2 will have between them 18,500 sites, each delivering coverage to both company’s customers.
Jack Bertok, Manager at Carolina Consulting states that: “Everything Everywhere have dominated the telecom market for some time, this new merge involving Vodafone and O2 will create more competition in the industry, consumers should expect some real improvements in mobile Internet services as well as more competitive pricing structures implemented in coming months”.
The two networks will be able to offer indoor 2G and 3G coverage targeting 98 percent of the UK population by 2015, which will deliver internet services and mobile coverage to the vast majority of UK households. The collaboration will ensure that the next generation of 4G mobile services is rolled out as widely and as rapidly as possible.
The roll out should help to close the digital divide between rural and urban areas, from a consumer standpoint; with two competing networks a nationwide 4G service should be achieved way sooner than could be achieved if the companies were working independently, states Jack Bertok of Carolina Consulting.
The regulatory requirement for 4G service is anticipated to be 98 percent population coverage by 2017.
Jack Bertok explains that Carolina Consulting’s success in recent years is underpinned by high demand for new customer acquisition from the clients they represent. Exceptional customer demand for the mobile internet has challenged the mobile industry to consider innovative solutions to building nationwide networks that will support the constantly evolving range of products and services that are now available and will be available in the future in the UK. Working with clients in an industry such as telecoms where the market place is so large has really given us the opportunity to show our clients what we’re capable of.
Jeremy Hunt, the culture secretary, has pledged that Britain will have the best superfast broadband in Europe by 2015.
Jack Bertok of Carolina Consulting explains “we are constantly forced to revise and improve our business strategies to allow us to grow faster and provide even better services for our clients tomorrow and for the years to come.”
