Interview with Benjamin Grim, Mobilcom Debitel

"Looking at the conference here (MVNOs World Congress 2018), and also at what we are looking at right now, for sure IoT/M2M is a business that MVNOs are looking at and trying to get in. eSIM is a technology that is enabling us to get in, or enabling a new business model and new digital business models. That could be, even for MVNOs, a big thing. Usually network operators are not as agile as MVNOs, so thinking about a full digital proposition, MVNOs could have a chance to use the eSIM to do a real online sale."
