Customer centricity

At Ice Group we believe in customer centricity. We strive to understand what really matters to our customers in each market and use that insight to drive everything that we do. We believe in establishing differentiation through creating an emotional connection with our customers to drive cost-effective growth.

These networks are ready to cater for exponentially growing data demand from both consumers and connected devices (IoT).

At Ice Group we also believe in the power of digitization. We use digital touchpoints, automation and data analytics to ensure that our organisations are lean, flexible and efficient with fast time-to-market at low cost of delivery.

Ice Group’s management and board have successful track records in turnarounds and building lean, customer centric mobile network operators across the world. Ice Group is backed by Access Industries, our majority shareholder and a privately held industrial group with a successful investment track record in media, telecommunications and e-commerce investments.
