Mr Svanberg estimates that 3 to 4 per cent of the world’s mobile
networks are managed by a third party. According to Ericsson, the
current value of outsourced telecoms services market is $55bn, with
telecom operators spending another $145bn a year on internal operating
expenses.

“The 3 deals in Italy and the UK are triggering
events,” Mr Svanberg says, adding that outsourcing the maintenance of a
mobile network can help operators reduce their operating costs by a
fifth.
