of digitalisation, and seeking new customer groups to sell your offering  


Coffee & Ice-breaker 

The first round of speed networking - everyone in the room gets to meet each other 


MVNO Nation Opening

Strategies for MVNOs to stay at the forefront of the telco game and continue growing


Use AI to revolutionize your MVNO:

  • As an MVNO, your network provider’s legacy on-premise tech stack holds you hostage. It hamstrings your business and blocks you from getting killer ideas to market quickly, slowing down your ability to attract and engage subscribers

  • You need SaaS-based tools that give you the flexibility to create your own plans that use modern technology and don't break the bank

  • Totogi’s Charging-as-a-Service and Plan AI products can help you leverage your valuable subscriber data to create AI-generated, personalized offers for subscribers that can help you grow ARPU and reduce churn
