Business transformation: The value of human capital - Mortimer Harvey
Business transformation: The value of human capital

The telecommunications industry, particularly mobile telecoms, has been under severe pressure in the last few years, leading to consolidation in the independent service provider niche. The catalyst came in 2013 when telecoms regulator ICASA decided to cut termination rates - the fees that operators charge to carry each other's calls. This sparked a price war and analysts predicted, unsurprisingly, that the situation was unsustainable. As operators squeezed margins and cut incentives to their service providers, the two independent players in the market, Altech Autopage and Nashua Mobile, felt the pinch from every angle. When the pressure forced Nashua out, Autopage bought a portion of its subscriber base. Continued industry and consumer deflationary pressures then led Altron to make the decision to dispose of Autopage's subscriber base a year later.
