The Future of Mobile Data

There's a reason why network operators love WiFi: their customers use a lot of data. The good news is, WiFi keeps getting better -- or at least in some parts of the US.

Mobile data and networks analytics company WeFi Inc. has been measuring WiFi and cellular network speeds on more than 170 million iOS and Android devices across the US since the beginning of the year. Its findings make it confident WiFi speeds will exceed 120 Mbit/s by 2020 and also give insight into what US consumers use their mobile devices for.

Re: WiFi problems
BT WiFi drives me crazy. It's everywhere in London, but hardly ever seems to work.

WiFi problems
Increasing WiFi speeds is great, but the reliability and handoff also needs to improve. Okay, I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but there are too many broken, bad, inconsistent public WiFi hotspots today.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
