+1M followers of your brand? Start your own telecom business in Europe, USA and Latam!

Do you already have more than 1 million followers on Facebook? More than 1 million downloads of your APP?
Great! Really great!
Now that you have such a large customer base probably it's time to monetize or provide new services to your loyal customers.
Telecom business is very open to new value propositions from reputable brands, and always open to innovation from new entrants.
I can help you to introduce your brand into telecom business in Europe, USA and Latam without any investment or monthly fee (on a pay-per-use business model) through a single management platform for all countries. We only need to understand and study your brand's strengths in order to build a strong business case in telecom for your own brand.
If that business case is suitable for getting at least 50k subscribers in 12 months, we'll finance, invest and take care of your full telecom deployment (including all technical, regulatory and market positioning issues).

1 de Agosto: el final de los 902 en la Atención al Cliente

El 1 de Agosto 2017 marcará el punto y final a la utilización de los 902 para la Atención al Cliente, debido a la subida sustancial de la tarifa que un usuario residencial de telefonía fija de Telefónica pagará para llamar a un 902:
  • 0,1529 € + iva de establecimiento de llamada
  • 0,1241 € + iva de precio por minuto.
Estas nuevas tarifas minoristas imposibilitan seguir utilizando la numeración 902 para atención posventa a clientes, tras la SENTENCIA DEL TRIBUNAL DE JUSTICIA EUROPEO del 2 de marzo de 2017:
El resumen de la resolución lo tenemos en el último párrafo:
  • El concepto de «tarifa básica», contemplado en el artículo 21 de la Directiva 2011/83/UE del Parlamento Europeo y del Consejo, de 25 de octubre de 2011, sobre los derechos de los consumidores, por la que se modifican la Directiva 93/13/CEE del Consejo y la Directiva 1999/44/CE del Parlamento Europeo y del Consejo y se derogan la Directiva 85/577/CEE del Consejo y la Directiva 97/7/CE del Parlamento Europeo y del Consejo, debe interpretarse en el sentido de que el coste de una llamada a una línea telefónica de asistencia operada por un comerciante, en relación con un contrato celebrado, no puede exceder del coste de una llamada a una línea telefónica fija geográfica o móvil estándar. Siempre que se respete este límite, el hecho de que el comerciante obtenga o no beneficios por medio de esa línea telefónica de asistencia es irrelevante.
Auguro un mes de Julio muy movido dentro del sector de las telcos en España en todo lo relacionado con los servicios de Atención al Cliente.
Y ya se sabe que, a río revuelto, ganancia de pescadores...
El mes de Julio será un buen momento para que operadores alternativos solventes a nivel técnico y financiero (que unos pocos sí hay) traten de mejorar su posición en este segmento de la Atención al Cliente...
