At Kearney, we understand that the telecommunications industry isn’t merely experiencing extraordinary change. It’s also driving and defining many of the changes that are transforming the entire global economy.

From 5G and fiber networks to mobile-edge computing and augmented reality, the telecom industry is redefining what’s possible—for business and residential customers alike. This is an industry that shapes how other industries imagine the future on everything from digitalization to sustainability. But even as the telecom industry transforms the world, it too is being transformed by major shifts in technology and relentless pressures to both keep up and reduce costs.
