#NAMA Speakers: Jonathan Bill, SVP, Innovation & Business Development, Vodafone India

At a time when the VAS ecosystem appears to be on the decline, Jonathan Bill, SVP (Innovation and Business Development) for Vodafone in India has been leading the charge for opening up the telecom operator networks to a wider ecosystem for participation, integrating telco billing for apps through third party vendors. As consumption of data increases and 4G networks (hopefully) grow, the relationship between telecom operators with both Mobile VAS and (Mobile) Internet and App companies is going to change. We’ll speak with Jonathan on how things should change, are changing, how telecom operators are expected to change, what the impact of 4G will be, and how the role of telecom operators will evolve, especially since they don’t want to operate as pipes.
