Today, over 2.5 billion people use over 750 mobile networks in 220 countries around the globe. Each and every one of these networks has to establish Bilateral Roaming Agreements with at least one mobile operator in each country in order to provide their subscribers with complete roaming coverage and the accompanied home experience abroad.
In practice, mobile operators have on average 200 to 400 bilateral agreements in place with some coverage gaps. The development of new mobile services requires upgrades of existing bilateral agreements while resources are limited and mobile operators face a lot of pressure to decrease the roaming cost structure.
