Welcome to the 23rd episode of JBKlutse Weekly. In this week’s blog, we’ve taken a look at the telecommunication industry where exciting things happened this week. We have noticed a particular trend — one telco launches a new product to get the customer’s focus and then another competitor launches a juicy freebie with the same motive.
We don’t know if it’s appropriate to call it competition yet, but if the industry is trying to stay on top of their game because they don’t want to fall out, then we love the new development. Competition does surely make “people” better.
So enjoy this episode and many other exciting stories. You can as well check out our previous episodes, and oh, please take a moment to subscribe to our Newsletter if this mail was forwarded to you. Also, join us on Telegram to enjoy amazing content from us.
