This past year has seen networks in the US change drastically through M&A, the growth of WiFi, LTE expansion, the launch of alternative access networks and more. Network maps of last year quickly grew out of date.
The mappers note that 99% of the US population is now covered by at least one LTE network, and 84.9% has at least two 4G choices. Perhaps most notably, it says that 23.5% of the population has the choice of at least five network operators, but that is down 59% over last year as consolidation has decreased the number of operators serving many rural areas.

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.
