While European mobile phone operators enjoy record levels of cash flow, their prices are increasingly under scrutiny from public opinion and telecom regulators. Their cash flow, however, is not under immediate threat. This is one of the conclusions suggested by this year's edition of Arthur D. Little's annual survey of mobile operators. Duarte and Scottez explore the present state of the industry in Europe and take a closer look at how the leading operators can sustain their level of cash flow in the future.
