Ep 45 - Drumming up ways to increase ARPU with McKinsey
Play • 25 min

Telco leaders have been scratching their heads about how to monetize their 5G network. One of the world’s top think tanks, McKinsey & Company, has opinions on this topic—and research to back them up. 

For this episode, I’m joined by McKinsey Partner Ferry Grijpink, founder of the McKinsey Center for Advanced Connectivity. He’s got great insights into how data analytics can help telcos personalize the subscriber experience and boost ARPU. Listen now to hear our conversation about:

  • What McKinsey’s research reveals about monetizing 5G investments [03:19];
  • Why telcos need to un-commoditize their products [04:36];
  • How delivering more personalized offers can boost ARPU [09:30]; and
  • Why the public cloud, AI, and ML are critical to achieving ARPU growth [16:19].
