Telecom operators have in many ways almost completed the job of connecting people, so - argues Andrew Collinson of STL Partners - need to establish their new role.

Andrew chaired day 2 of this years Total Telecom Congress and raised the question of what future role of a telco should be, going on to argue that they could carve out a new role helping to make the world run better.

The Total Telecom Congress returns to the Business Design Centre, London on the 29-30 October 2019. Find out more here.
