Ice Group is a mobile network operator with a customer-centric business model. Our operations are lean and digital-first so we can deliver an exceptional customer experience at low cost.
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.
We also believe in the future of mobile data. By acquiring low band spectrum and building 4G LTE networks, we aim to deliver mobile data at the lowest unit costs in our markets while simultaneously building future-proof networks. 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.
