DSPs are undermining their own 5G investment. Here's why (and how to fix it)

LONDON - Dec. 10, 2020 - PRLog -- Highlights:
* Billions spent on network investment are at risk due to slow take-up of 5G.
* Customer expectations of 5G are being frustrated by lack of experience innovation.
* Poor communication of new services and price plans threatens to drive up operational costs.
* Unlocking full commercial potential of 5G requires communication innovation.

It's been 10 years in the making. It's cost billions to develop and implement. Millions more have been spent on inspirational advertising campaigns depicting an aspirational 5G lifestyle to encourage customers to upgrade.

5G is the panacea we've all been waiting for. It's transformative: changing communications service providers into digital service providers, reshaping the world we live in, and providing a powerful platform for innovation. It's set to power everything from the Work Anywhere trend, to augmented and virtual reality, the next generation of gaming, connected industrial robots, and self-driving cars. It's faster, much faster. Very low latency. Exciting. Very exciting.

There's just one teeny, tiny problem in all of this: no-one is listening.

5G hasn't grabbed the attention and imagination of consumers in the way that an iPhone launch once did. They're not getting out of bed before dawn to queue round the corner to sign up. In fact, some are worried by 5G and have begun telling their own scare stories to anyone who'll listen. Meanwhile, business customers are increasingly frustrated, because 5G isn't happening fast enough for them and is still more hype than reality.

All customers are asking one very simple question: what's in it for me?

"While the communications industry is brilliant at delivering technological innovation, it's never been very good at innovating the customer experience," says Teresa Cottam, Chief Analyst at industry analysts Omnisperience. According to Cottam this has led to a widening gap between what customers expect from 5G and what's actually being delivered. "The entire 5G proposition is now at risk," she argues "because the industry is delivering a 5G network but a 2G experience."

Omnisperience's new paper, 'DCES - Building Value Through Effective Communication & Engagement', explains why effective communication is a huge commercial issue for digital service providers, impacting on both their top and bottom lines and playing a vital role in building healthy, long-lasting customer relationships. Omnisperience advocates taking a new approach to communication (DCES) which it says increases communication effectiveness, supports communication innovation and unleashes business value by breaking down communication silos and delivering a purposefully designed communication and engagement experience.
