It’s no secret that today’s consumer looks and acts differently than the consumer of fifteen years ago. While in the past, consumers may have been satisfied with standardized services and solutions that matched those of their neighbors, friends or acquaintances, people now expect products and services that best fit theirindividual needs and interests.

Thanks to smartphones and data networks, that industry has moved from a system of telephone poles and wires that delivered the same services to everyone, to one defined by personalized service and application delivery which allows consumers to use their phones in ways that best fit their lifestyles. Telecom companies actively leverage their consumers’ behavioral, transactional and demographic data to personalize their services and engage customers more deeply than they did just a few years ago.
