Network Outages Costing Mobile Operators $15B Annually

Sarah Reedy reporting in LightRading: "Mobile operators suffer from an average of five network outages or degradations that impact subscribers each year, costing them around $15 billion annually, according to new Heavy Reading research. Put another way, that's about one outage every other month. More than 80 percent of those outages affect just one or a subset of networks or services."
