Introduction

Ovum has just completed a series of seven case studies analyzing the quad-play strategies of operators around the globe. The research series is accompanied by a report which identifies best practices and lessons learnt by operators who have launched quad-play bundles. This Research Note highlights the five key messages from the report and provides links to the full published case studies and best practices wrap-up report.
