Pinsent Masons whitepaper outlines new carrier business models In an increasingly competitive and ‘always on’ world, telecoms carriers in EMEA need to focus on their key strengths and adopt more service-based business models if they are to survive. These are the key findings from a new report by international law firm, Pinsent Masons, which specialises in advising telecoms and technology businesses across the globe.

The whitepaper report identifies the following five key areas for carriers to consider in the future:
