Accelerating the industry

For Roaming and Interconnect to continue to succeed, the whole ecosystem must be in step. Who likes to be left behind? Unless MNOs come together, a lack of innovation can and will create massive issues for the end customers, with domestic services, not functioning when customers go abroad. Is there any point, for example, to be ready for 5G SA Roaming today and not having any roaming partners to launch with?
