#ThinkDigital interview with Helmut Reisinger, CEO Orange Business Service

What are the next big trends for telcos on a 5-year horizon? How can the sector lead on sustainability?

So, I think if we take into account these facts together with the stakeholders, meaning the European Commission and the in-country regulators, but also we, as operators and economic players in this, we should be up to really give better digital services."
