Dear reader,

The first quarter of 2016 was successful for A&B Groep. We hope that you and your company also had a good start of this year. Together with our US based partner CBI Telecommunications Consultations we have made major global steps. We’ve been busy with the launch of our new worldwide telecom expense & mobility management service GTEM Solutions. In this newsletter you will read about all these developments. We also like to inform you about an international award A&B Groep received, developments in the telecom sector and our AOTMP Certification.

Kind regards,

Ron Rijkenberg

European businesses pay too much for telecom

European businesses pay too much for telecom

Companies are still paying too much for telecommunication services such as telephony (fixed and mobile), text messaging and data usage on mobile devices, particularly when used across international borders. While roaming charges (additional costs associated with data usage abroad) will no longer apply in 2017, the real problem according to us, is the patchwork European climate. In our opinion, companies won't be saving much with the abolition of mobile roaming charges. Providers will simply find another way to make money.
