Senior Manager, Accenture Nigeria

They say the only constant in life, is change. In no other industry is this statement more relevant than in the telecommunications industry.

However the development of enabling technologies such as the integrated circuit, and more recently the internet, have continued to help push the boundaries of possibility in the telecoms industry.
