In our meetings, operators all around the world recognized the need for the 1440 strategy. Within a year, CG Corp Global has shown a visionary approach and chosen Lifecell’s digital services. Today 9 operators in 3 different continents, have started to implement the 1440 strategy – already proven to be successful in 6 countries.

During the signing ceremony, CG Corp Global Chairman Dr. Binod Chaudhary stated that “A year ago we started to negotiate with Lifecell about the digital transformation in Nepal. Our aim was to provide a better and digitalized operator service for Nepal citizens. Lifecell was the best partner that we could work because of its broad experience, wise strategy and impressive vision. In this scope, we are planning to launch digital products first. Then, we will establish our telecom operator CG Lifecell. We believe that this cooperation will create a great success story.”

This is only possible by becoming a ‘digital operator’. Operators have to offer services that customers truly need otherwise they will not move beyond being merely infrastructure providers.”
