Re: Fate of smaller operators
I'm guessing there's no real policy rationale behind the squeeze on smaller players  - it's surely just a result of the big guys leaning on the government.

Re: Fate of smaller operators
That is true. Indian Government is just not interested in supporting smaller players. This is also in conflict with the recent policies of `Make in India' and `Digital India'. The big players as of now are fairly metro centric. The smaller telcos could have played a significant role in expansion in rural segment. Uninor is a good example of this. Besides Vodafone, I think Uninor is now very nicely poised to expand and succeed in the Indian market. Their policy of offering the cheapest in the service areas in which they are operating is clearly doing well. Lets see if they are able in the ongoing auctions...

Fate of smaller operators
Given the way the auction was designed, it seems as though Indian authorities have littie interest in supporting smaller players, and yet they were keen to invite them in several years ago. Vodafone now appears to be the only operator controlled by a foreign entity that has really flourished, and its entry into the Indian market was obviously by way of acquiring a major player.

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.
