Ro oaming Agre eemen nt Neg gotiatio on

C Commerci al Outline e
To offer roam T ming services s both compe etitively and p profitably, an operator needs to maxim mize its roam ming fo ootprint by co oncluding roaming agree ements with s suitable roam ming partners s on reasonable terms. This c be a challenge both for can f new opera ators, and in ncreasingly for f operators s who lack the leverage of o la arge parent groups. g Additionally, making A m conta act with pote ential partner rs a persuading them to fi and it you into the eir testing s schedule, can n make conc cluding roaming agreeme ents la aborious and d protracted!
