The field of telecommunications develops constantly and fast, and newer mobile technologies replace outdated solutions. In the past, the main aim of communications operators was to provide telephone services, whereas now they offer service packages tailored to the needs of different customer groups. It is now important to ensure the availability of the Internet, which gives the opportunity to use many services online. Customers increasingly prefer mobile services to services in the fixed-line network.
