Telecom operators are waging a war for connectivity and customer intimacy. As profit pools decline, mobile and fixed services converge, and business boundaries in the broader ecosystem blur, RSTCA can help. We serve telcos around the world, helping them to better understand their customers, build superior networks, find a sustainable path to growth and achieve cost leadership while maintaining a high-performance organization.

Our clients are passionate about seizing opportunities to transform their businesses, and our telecommunications consulting experts provide critical support and expertise to help companies achieve lasting results. We focus on developing pragmatic strategies to address our clients’ most critical challenges.

  • Growth: Strategy is at the core of everything we do at RSTCA. We act as trusted advisers, supporting telecommunications companies in making strategic decisions about wireless strategy, mobile strategy, fixed-mobile convergence and more.
