I had a chance to have a podcast interview with Dieter Thompson the CEO of TAG, an Alcatel-Lucent company specializing in telecom procurement, contract negotiation and vendor management solutions.
Thompson shares many things in this interview — one important point is that many local telecom services are going up in price. is the FCC to blame? Is there really enough competition? Dieter goes into these areas and discusses why carriers in some cases won’t even bid on contracts.
is WiMAX the answer? Dieter explores this idea as well.
Thompson discusses many things such as cost pressures due to the economy, the future of procurement, how to deal with telecom liability how $99/month wireless pricing is changing how companies deal with their telecom bills and more.
